Default The longest sea-crossing bridge in the world

I would certainly not drive across this thing. All it takes is one Tsunami or Earthquake and your are shark bait.

If you run out of gas or have a flat, it certainly would be a long walk (11 miles at most).



The longest sea-crossing bridge in the world

It is the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world - 36 kilometres long (22 miles) - and shortens the distance between Shanghai and Ningbo by 120 km. This fantastic bridge crossing the Hangzhou Bay is expected to have a 100-year lifespan, and has a price tag of 11.8 billion yuan (US$1.70 billion).

See a picture of it here: http://www.hangzhoubaybridge.com/bridge.asp

Of the 1.7 billion used, about $40 went to paying the workers who built the bridge.

6 lanes in each direction , guess they'll never have to worry about traffic jams.Maybe New York and Los Angeles should hire thier engineers to build some over here.

Look how huge Shanghai is. It dwarfs New York City.
It seems like they do everything super huge.
The Chinese are definitely scary.
They already finished all their Olympic construction last year and
they could have finished it even sooner.
Next thing you know they will be sending a man to Mars.
