The Hangzhou Bay Bridge is the longest trans-oceanic bridge in the
World (36 km or 22 miles long; six expressway lanes in two
directions), although it does
not have the longest cable-stayed main span, the bridge has two main spans, with
a 448 m (1,470 ft) northern span, and a 318-metre (1,043 ft) southern span.
After a decade of planning and design, more than 4 years of construction, and
about US$ 1.5 billion investment, the Bridge was opened to the public
on May 1, 2008.
