Not only has the world 's largest wall, from Thursday June 30 China also has the world's largest bridge. This work took 4 years to complete and involved 5000 pillars that cost 200 thousand total $ 500 million.

The author of the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in China is Thomas J. Campanella who teaches the art of PlaneaciÃ_ny Design at the University of North Carolina.

" The dragon cement " as appointed him, broke the record held by the viaduct over Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. The world 's largest bridge has a length of 42. 4 kilometers and crosses Jiaozhou Bay communicating Qungdao coastal city with the suburb of Huangdao.

The distance of this new bridge could cross the English Channel, which at its narrowest point is 32 miles.

It will be the world 's largest until 2016

It is estimated that the "record bridge " milvehÃ_culos 30 day transit and travel time between the two ends is reduced in half an hour.

However, it is likely that the new bridge will not hold the record for the longest in the world for long.

In 2009, China began the work of another bridge even longer linking the main industrial center of Guangdong with Hong Kong and Macau. To open in 2016, will be over water.

Why China is interested in building bridges of such magnitude?
