Worlds longest bridges

Recommended Posts

On Thursday, Chinese officials announced the opening of the Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Railway, which consists of the 102-mile long Danyang–Kunshan Grand bridge and the 71-mile long Tianjin Grand Bridge — the two longest in the world.

Officials also unveiled the world’s longest sea bridge, a 26-mile expanse of steel and concrete that stretches from Qingdao to Huangdao. Both achievements were celebrated in ceremonious fashion, with live bands and an appearance by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, to demonstrate the country’s commitment to ensuring that a massive infrastructure will be in place to support its rapid economic growth.
