This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile29762/Worlds-Longest-Sea-Bridge.htm>Worlds Longest Sea Bridge</a></b><br><br>A 36-kilometre (22-mile) structure connecting Jiaxing city near Shanghai to the port city of Ningbo in the eastern province of Zhejiang.<br />
<br />
It is slightly shorter than the 38.4-kilometre Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridge in the southern United States, which is often billed as the world's longest.<br />
<br />
The 11.8 billion yuan (1.7 billion dollars) bridge cuts the length of the road trip from Shanghai to Ningbo by 120 kilometres, the official Xinhua news agency said.<br />
<br />
Construction of the six-lane bridge started in November 2003 in an effort to reduce traffic congestion in the booming area.<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/86586bridge.jpg>
