China opens world’s longest bridge over water





According to dvice ”Costing $2.3 billion to construct, the Qingdao Haiwan Bridge was built to cut the traveling time between Qingdao City and its Huangdao district from 40 minutes to 20.There is somewhat of a discrepancy relating to its length. According to Wikipedia, the bridge measures 26.4 miles long, besting out the previous record-holder, Louisiana’s Lake Pontchartrain Causeway which is 23.83 miles long. Interestingly enough, China’s official news agency, the Xinhua reports that the bridge is 36.48 kilometers, which would put it at about 22.66 miles long, and well under Lake Pontchartrain’s record.
