China finishes longest sea bridge

Longest sea bridgeChina has completed the construction of the world's longest sea-crossing bridge, in the east of the country.

The 36km (22.5 mile) road bridge stretches across the mouth of Hangzhou Bay in the East China Sea.

Officials plan to open the structure next year, once feeder roads and toll booths have been completed.

While it is the longest sea bridge ever built, it is around 2km short of the bridge across Lake Pontchartrain in the US state of Louisiana.
