Fascinating to watch, but I'll feel better when those two ends meet!

I am curious what kind of support structure they will use for this connection to accomplish? It seems impossible in my point of view.

Did you see the amount of steel they're using? AND they're reinforcing that with concrete.

Yeah but are they just using conventional steel or concrete? Or maybe special ones like titanium or the concrete mixture used in bank vaults?

let's see. I know some heavy-pollution industries, like Capitol Steel has moved out of Beijing. But I'm not so sure it will purify the air a lot. Beijing has an air pollution index, from that it seems air is getting better and better. here're some pics from yesterday and today,

TVCC




CCTV
