Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in Qingdao, Shandong province June 27, 2011.
Debuting its latest modern marvel, China has opened the
world's longest sea bridge, a 26.4 mile-long structure that
could easily span the length of the English Channel.
Expanding across the wide blue waters of Jiaozhou bay, the
vast Y-shaped bridge connects the Northern port city of Qingdao
with an airport built on a nearby island and the industrial
suburb of Huangdao. The bridge halves the journey time to the
other side of the bay, making it just 30 minutes.
wonder if this was a "shovel ready" job... ha ha ha
