Taklimakan Desert Highway in Xinjiang, China (i.e. Tarim desert highway): it is the longest class highway running through the flowing desert in the world, and also the earliest desert highway in China. In order to prevent the flowing sand from covering the road surface, a large number of sand control plants such as Elaeagnus angustifolia, Haloxylon ammodendron and Tamarix have been planted on both sides of the road. In the road, a Shuijingfang will be arranged every five kilometers, and staff will be stationed for a long time to maintain and water these plants
