China Opens World’s Longest Bridge

30 Jun

Qingdao Haiwan Bridge, the new world’s longest bridge over water.

Wikipedia says the bridge measures 26.4 miles long, beating Louisiana’s Lake Pontchartrain Causeway which is 23.83 miles long. But.. 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. Who knows, who cares, it’s just a massive bridge! Well done China.
