July 1st 2011 witnessed the historic opening of the world’s longest bridge; Jiaozhou Bay Bridge linking Qingdao to Huangdao Island. Spanning over an unimaginable 42.5 kilometers, China has shown the world once again that it has arrived on the global stage and looks poised to be a world leader in infra-structure engineering.
It is truly awesome. Imagine the bridge is enough to run a full marathon from start to finish, end to end.
Coming in the near future will be a bridge linking Hong Kong to Macau. Now that is expected to be 80 kilometers long. What’s next?
