World’s longest Sea Bridge, connecting China and HongKong, opens today

Henceforth China takes another initiative to bridge the gap with HongKong and is all set to connect the former European outposts of Hong Kong and Macau with the mainland. 


The latest project is the $15 billion, 55-kilometer (34-mile) bridge, which is speculated to be the world’s longest sea link, and would open for traffic at 9 am Wednesday and is tipped to carry some 29,000 cars and trucks daily between Zhuhai on the mainland and Hong Kong, a former British colony. The waters over which the bridge lays foundation was formerly patrolled by three navies, and the land borders were decades ago guarded by the People’s Liberation Army to mostly keep the defectors from leaving.
