    Default Danyang Kunshan Grand Bridge, the worlds longest discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Danyang Kunshan Grand Bridge, the worlds longest

    The Danyang Kunshan Grand Bridge is the worlds longest brigde. It is 164,8 kilometers, 102,4 miles, 540709 feet, 164800 meters long. It was completed in 2010 after four years of construction and opened on June 30, 2011.

    The brigde is part of the 1318 kilometers (819 miles) long Jinghu high-speed railway also known as the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway.

    About the "Danyang Kunshan Grand Bridge tour":
    See the start and end of the very long brigde, including current and historic placemarks along the brigde. Included is detailed tracks composed from various sources to show the current most precise path of the entire bridge, included a pre and post path at the start and end of the brigde. The tracks/path are at 33m/99ft level above ground to let you do a play track with a view from a bit above ground. Consider adjusting the GE 'Camera tilt angle' to 80 degrees or above, in 'tools, options..., touring', for better display when playing tracks/paths. Enjoy! Tour creator: Tom Kjeldsen, created july 2011. Recommended to be viewed as a 'Play tour' in Google Earth with terrain feature enabled.

    Default Start & End Point seems to be slightly off

    Start and end point are according to my investigation slightly off.
    The locations I found are:
    Start 32.045042,119.631758
    End 31.341487,121.06513

    Your start would be on the old railway line, but this cannot be, since the high speed line runs about 3 km North East in this location. The end is after the Kunshan South Railway Station on the North Side of a small channel. The station itself is on the bridge.

    Openstreetmap and Yahoo Map show the correct location of the highspeedline.

    Hi pcrail

    Thank you very much for the correction .

    Both in terms of lack of facts and low quality images, it has been a bit difficult to find the exact start and end. Your input certainly brings it closer to the correct places, thanks! . When GE images sometime do update we may get an even more precise view.

    Again thank you for your input. File is updated, also with placemarks adjusted to the railway stations along the brigde.

    best regards
    Tom
