    Three of the world’s longest bridges are in Louisiana, and they are all automobile bridges over shallow water. I would not expect cars to be on the Chinese bridges anytime soon, since the average Chinese cannot afford one. We will keep buying Chinese products so you can build lots more billion-dollar railway bridges.

  2. Fuck you Don

    Just like an American to try to diminish accomplishments of other nationalities. It is such a big irony that the largest melting pot of cultures in the world also contains the largest number of racists.

    Why can’t you fucking Americans just say, “Wow, that’s great.” , instead of things like, “well, we did this, and you know, that’s not so great …”

      We you know when you view of the world is so small and all you have been taght is hatred and prejiducies what the HELL you except? Certainly not just recognition! On that note I think I will go there and I understand and sympathize for the racist. It must be rough when all you see is negative when there is beauty all around.

    I think that the lengths of the last two bridges should be given in meters not kilometres:

    “In fact, three of the world’s longest bridges are from China: the Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge, Tianjin Grand Bridge at 113,700 meters* and Weinan Weihe Grand Bridge at 79,732 meters*.”

    A bridge 113,700 kilometres long would curcumnavigate the globe along the equator almost three times.

    So sad there are bunch of racists here. They should not be in this world. They always think they are always better than others. I am in US but I could see American arrogance is not worth it. Watch out for the dollar going down in 3 to 4 years and it will be worth a trash.

    This article contains some erroneous information. First of all, you’e confused kilometers with meters. Secondly, the picture you have shown of the Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge is incorrect. That is an automobile bridge which the Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge does not transport. You can even look at the bridge on Google Maps and see for yourself – it does not cross this length of water. Third, the Pontchartrain bridge in Louisiana covers the greatest distance of water, a few miles longer than the Haiwan bridge.

    On a separate point, it makes me sad to see such ignorant examples of racism in the comments – Please know that not all Americans are as stupid as the ones above. Mostly we are the same – we work and pursue happiness as best we can.
