The longest bridge in the world was inaugurated in China.
Perhaps the motto of the Chinese people is “Higher, Greater, Better”. At least, the latest engineering achievements prove this. The Qingdao Bridge in Shandong Province, considered the longest water bridge in the world, was put into operation today. The bridge connects the shores of Jiaozhou Bay in the Yellow Sea, with a length of 41.58 km. Construction of the bridge lasted four years, a relatively short term for such a project. About ten thousand workers worked on edification, and engineers used modern measurement technology, which allowed them to build it simultaneously on both sides. Of course, the expenses were as well. The cost of construction works amounts to about 9 billion US dollars.
