I think China improving and building up their infrastructure is an awesome thing. Their cities have lots of people so they should build as many bridges as they can. Great pictures.

That is not to say that the Trajan's Bridge across the Danube was even larger (1080 m) and had between its twenty pillars spans of 52 m - world record for over a thousand years.

And Caesar built during his Gallic War a wooden bridge across the Rhine in 10 days. That was in the 50s BC. The first permanent Chinese bridge across the Yellow River, on the other hand, dates from the early 20th century AD. A European steel construction by the way.
The Roman Empire does not exist anymore. Little kid, please stop trolling around here.

I always found amazing undemocratic countries, they built stuffs without asking to the population if it's nice or not, if it costs a lot or not, or if a bunch of houses are historical or not, really amazing... enjoying life in China, until a better future with India.

How do you know they didn't ask the public? dumbhead, you know nothing. And why always bring india to a China thread. We are totally totally different nations. Don't ever never do that. Neither Chinese nor Indians like this.
