WORLD'S LONGEST BRIDGE WAS OFFICIALLY OPENED

Labels:

The Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in Qingdao, China opened Thursday and is the world's longest cross-sea bridge at 42 km
It looks like they're going to have to change some promotional materials down in Louisiana, where the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway(right photo) has long claimed to be the world's longest bridge over open water. At nearly 24 miles, the causeway is plenty long.
But China has opened the world's longest cross-sea bridge. The Jiaozhou Bay bridge is 42 kilometres long and links China's eastern port city of Qingdao to an offshore island, Huangdao.
State-run CCTV says the 35-metre-wide bridge is the longest of its kind and cost about $1.5 billion Cdn.
CCTV says the bridge passed construction appraisals on Monday and the bridge and an undersea tunnel opened to traffic on Thursday. It has taken four years to build the bridge, which is supported by more than 5,000 pillars.
