Jinji expressway construction pics

Jinji expressway (晋济高速), located in Shanxi Province, is part of national expressway from Taiyuan to Macau. Running in mountains and canyons, it is one of the most difficult-to-build expressways in China.

The project started in 2005, will be finished in Dec 2008.

I here salute the hardworking Chinese construction workers. It is their sweat that molded these high ways. How many people driving on the nice roads will think about these workers?

Recent pictures of Sutong bridge

Below are pictures taken of the Sutong bridge on 4/20:

Some background on the bridge:

The bridge linking two major cities in the eastern Jiangsu Province is being built by the Second Engineering Corp. of the China Road and Bridge Corp. at a cost of 6.45 billion yuan (830 million U.S. dollars).

Started simultaneously in the cities of Nantong and Suzhou in 2003, the Sutong Yangtze Road Bridge, linking Nantong and Changshu in Suzhou, runs 32.4 kilometers, with 8,146 meters spanning the Yangtze, China's longest waterway.

It has the world's longest span of 1,088 meters, usurping the previous record holder, the Tatara Bridge in Japan, which has a main span of 890 meters.

Its steel and concrete bridge towers, the tallest in the world, stand at 300.4 meters.

Below is map of location:

Impressive freeways indeed. Especially the greening landscape surrounding it.

I can only wish the country that I'm currently residing in can have the money to build infrastructure in such a rapid pace.

The truth is, many people are not satisfied because they want 10 million $ not a mere 1 million for an individual house.

Yeah western Media is pretty negative about anything that's not Western. It's the same about eastern/central/southeastern European countries, they all represent it like they are underdeveloped countries where nobody owns a car and everybody lives in wooden sheds or commieblocks.

No, it's because most Chinese expressways are not all concrete, but with asphalt and nice landscaping. A lot of US freeways do not have that. In the Chinese way it's more aesthetic and accepted by the citizens.
