Changsha (长沙) is the capital city of Hunan province in China.
- G4 Highway option 1: It is easy to get to the on-ramp near the Changsha Avenue metro station (长沙大道) and there is space for cars to pull over and enough chance for them to see you. The 'no pedestrians' sign is up on the on-ramp fairly close to the tollgate. Tollgate staff seem indifferent. Unfortunately no cars stopped for me with a Wuhan sign either before or on the on-ramp. Perhaps most cars stay on the S40 rather than going straight onto the G4.
- G4 Highway option 2: "Changsha Service Area" (长沙服务区) is located right next to Dongsheng Road bus terminal (东升路公交首末站) on the G4. Several bus routes go to this terminal: 203, 503, 703, Xing Tong 1 (星通1), and Xing Tong 26 (星通26). I will try this today when there is a break in the rain.
