China World Longest Sea Bridge Building: Bridge Qingdao Haiwan

At 42.5 miles, Qingdao Haiwan Bridge, linking the city of Qingdao in East China's Shandong Province with Huangdao County suburbs around the northern waters of Jiaozhou Bay, is the longest bridge over water. Six-lane road bridge approximately 5 miles longer than the previous record holder - the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in the U.S. state of Louisiana. When opened to traffic later this year, the bridge is expected to perform more than 30,000 cars a day and would cut travel between the cities of Qingdao and the vast suburban areas, Huangdao by between 20 and 30 minutes.
The bridge was built in just 4 years at a cost of U.S. $ 8.6 billion. At least 10,000 workers in two teams working hard around the clock to build a bridge, built from different ends and connected in the middle of the last few days. The 450,000 tons of steel structure supported by 5200 columns and strong enough to withstand an earthquake measuring 8, the hurricane or the impact of ship 300,000 tons.

China is home to seven of the 10 longest bridges in the world, including the world's lengthiest bridge, fence 102 miles Danyang-Kunshan, which runs on top of soil and water near Shanghai.

And with the Beijing pumping billions into improving the infrastructure of China, Qingdao Haiwan Bridge will not be the longest sea bridge in the world for a long time. In December 2009, work began on 31 mile bridge will connect Zhuhai in southern Guangdong province, the heart of Chinese manufacturing, the financial center of Hong Kong. £ 6500000000 Project is expected to be completed by 2016.
