may be in Yichang which city very close to the dam. imo, this dam is not use for visite, in fact it will become more and more dangereous if build more and more building near here, terrorist may use these buildings to destroy dam. Now, people can go to the top of dam, but must belowe 3000 every day.

“向坝顶冲刺!”三峡大坝建成在即
2006年05月05日 10:24:37  来源:新华网综合

新华网宜昌5月4日电(记者江时强 余国庆)举世瞩目的三峡大坝预计今年5月底全线建成,目前正进入最后的大坝建设冲刺阶段。

三峡大坝全长2309米,设计坝顶海拔高程185米,混凝土浇筑总量1610万立方米,是世界上规模最大的钢筋混凝土大坝。根据防洪、发电、航运的需要,左岸大坝已于2002年10月建成,右岸大坝于2003年7月开始浇筑。三峡右岸大坝总浇筑混凝土430万立方米。记者了解到,目前右岸大坝全面建成只余下3000多立方米混凝土,仅有两个施工坝段没有浇筑到185米高程,预计大坝全线完工将提前9个月。

“五一”期间,记者来到繁忙的三峡工地,登上高耸的坝顶,只见左、右岸大坝已浑然连成一体,横卧峡江,奔腾的长江在雄伟的大坝前显得十分安详。

数百名三峡建设者正奋战在右岸坝顶。施工单位青云水利水电公司和葛洲坝集团公司的旗帜迎风飘扬,“大坝建成挡水倒计时牌”立在坝顶迎水面一侧,指挥员边吹哨边打着小旗,指挥巨大的塔吊来回将钢筋、混凝土从坝下运到坝顶施工仓位,在旁边监理的指导下,工人们正在将混凝土一层层摊铺浇筑到位,到处是一派紧张而有序的施工景象。

葛洲坝集团公司负责施工的坝段已基本浇筑至185米,工人们正忙碌着浇水养护大坝。公司测量员胡峰正和几名同事测量垫石高程,他说:“浇水养护是大坝防裂的一道工序,三峡工程质量无小事,任何一道工序都不能出事,右岸大坝目前没有发现裂缝,这和每一个三峡建设者的质量意识分不开。”

三峡大坝全线建成,标志着三峡主体工程完工。右岸大坝项目总监理时会良告诉记者,三峡工地实行“零安全事故、零质量缺陷”的“双零”管理模式,右岸大坝施工一个仓位落实一个责任人,对混凝土浇筑质量严格监控。“最后的阶段,我们不能有任何懈怠,必须保证向党和人民交一份满意的答卷。”

I visited the dam last year around july. Then if i remember correctly it was about 3/4 complete. The most amazing thing for me was the shiplocks, not the sheer size of the dam. The width of the wall was huge, but i didnt find the height that impressive. I thought it would have been larger, but it was still a magnificant, amazing project to witness.

Fascinating project. It's just unfortunate that so many ancient villages and temples that are part of China's history had to be abandoned and destroyed to make way for the rising waters created by the dam.

If this dam performs its functions well, it will bring many benefits despite the environmental consequences. Flooding on the river will be controlled. Much electric power will be generated.

Most of the benefits will be reaped by relatively affluent city-dwellers rather than the poor.

agh, long comment lost to the ether...
my point was that which is better.
1bn chinese living sustainably in a rural setting, living locally, and sustainably from what they grow. Dying in their 100s in coal mines, working all day in sweat factories, making cheap plastic throwaway products for Western society, destroying their environment, living in polluted cities in high-rise apartments. Throwing away their bicycle to join the rat-ace.
They might earn more but farmers living in communities living off the land in a rural setting suffer for earning < $1 a day. They might be financially poor but they dont need it. The West classifies poor people sometimes as not having money - but that's not everything that makes somebody live happily.

Agree that they don't really need to be financially rich. But they do want to live comfortably. And earning less than $1 a day isn't going to help them do that. Even you don't need to be financially rich. So why don't you grow your own food, forget about education and live happily? You get what I mean now? They'd want their children to go to college. Its not all just about cars.

Its not as simple as it might sound to you. Just take care of farm and live happily. No its more than that. You need cloths, transportation and education. And those cannot be obtained without money.
