World's longest cross-sea bridge opens in China

Inaugurated the world's largest sea bridge in China Thursday (30.06) which were used at least 450 000 tonnes of steel, 2.3 million cubic meters of concrete and took more than a million billion Euro's!
Undeniably, this is a masterpiece of work: The bridge has a length of 43 kilometers is the largest of its kind and based on 5000 columns.
This bridge connects two focal points of China's port city Qingdao, which lies east of the country, with the island Huangdao, and the airport Qingdao-Liuting.
In fact, the somewhat unusual this route (which eliminates the distances between areas of China), it is quite literally just over the water, because the distance between bridge-sea water is much smaller than that of other bridges.
To accomplish This spectacular construction took almost four years, while "hosts" about 30,000 cars every day!

antiseismic structure

Particularly important, especially when talking about a seismic country like China is that the construction of the giant bridge is antiseismic, since withstand even an earthquake 8 on the Richter scale.
