I've read this in the paper, this bridge will connect a seaport(in the middle of the sea) for 31 extremely large cargo ships!!!

It will be the 2nd longest, I believe, after the 38.6km Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana.

dang! this is gonna be china's version of the lake pontchartrain bridge in louisiana! i'm sure it crosses the entire hangzhou bay to allow a faster commute between shanghai and ningbo so commuters won't have to bypass hangzhou. if it only goes to an island in the middle of the bay, then the cost's not gonna be worth it.

it's crazy to see the bridge snake around in the water. i wonder why did they do that? to ensure that they'll get the longest trans-oceanic bridge title?

that'd suck if someone runs out of gas on the middle of the bridge though...lol

It runs out to an island, for freight purposes. More of a commercial bridge for the gigantic new port facilities out in the ocean. The current Shanghai port is extremely overcrowded.

Wait until the 29 Km Hong Kong-Macau-Zhuhai Bridge completes, then China has at least 2 25km+ bridges. Cool eh?

What about Bo Hai bridge linking Yantai and Dalian? I think it is approved and it should be even longer...

This bridge is NOT the Hangzhou Bay Bridge which is still under early construction stage. The Hangzhou Bay Bridge is at about 50km west of the East Sea Bridge. Separately, there is also another Hangzhou Bay bridge at Shaoxing whose total length is 16km.

Lake Pontchartrain Causeway is not trans-oceanic. Nothing wrong for Chinese to claim the 36km long Hangzhou Bay Bridge as the longest trans-oceanic bridge. And the 31km long East Sea Brigdge may be ranked as the second longest one, and the Hongkong-Macau bridge the thrid one.

Wait... so there are two bridges that will be in Hangzhou Bay? One that links Shanghai to an island and another that links Shanghai to Ningbo?

Yes, that is correct. Sure makes one proud to hail from Shanghai.

I think that there is a third bridge 13km long over Hangzhou bay planned, closer to Hangzhou city, which should be finished by 2009.

Hey, and what about that huge project linking Jiangsu-Chongming island-Shanghai over Yangtze Delta? There must be at least another mega bridge planned there!

It would be really interesting to see a situation map for each of these projects.

Why would China build a huge, long bridge from Shanghai just to link a small island port?

Maybe because containers must be transported to that huge (not small) port by lorries from inner Shanghai industries?

Yes, that is correct. It also facilitates imports just as much as exports. The sheer volume of freight on that bridge (you will see) will justify its construction cost.
