good question. yes china suffers over-investment problem in some industries like steel, automobile, cement and real estate but not in transportation sector. Due to the booming economical scale, China's roads, railways, ports and bridges have been running overloaded for years. All the bridges shown above were built in the three most economically active areas where the the transportation demand is hugh and pressue is high. Some projects are big and costly but they are approved based on the civil planning and demand projections to make sure the current economical growth rate sustainable. Thank you for commenting!
