Suck on that Len

via Andrew Sullivan

It only makes sense that the country that brought you the Great Wall of China is now home to the world’s longest sea bridge. The 26-mile Jiaozhou Bay bridge, which was built over the course of four years for $1.5 billion, links China’s eastern port city of Qingdao to an offshore island, Huangdao, according to the AP (the previous record-holder was the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana). It is supported by more than 5,000 pillars, is expected to carry more than 30,000 cars per day, and opened for traffic on Thursday.

How much does Len Brown want to spend on a train set and a tunnel again? That’s right more than 5 times what it cost for China to build the logest bridge in the world.
