Worlds Longest Sea Bridge

A 36-kilometre (22-mile) structure connecting Jiaxing city near Shanghai to the port city of Ningbo in the eastern province of Zhejiang.



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.



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.



Construction of the six-lane bridge started in November 2003 in an effort to reduce traffic congestion in the booming area.
