A huge change is underway in China. Over the next 10 years, the country plans to move 250 million people the equivalent population of Indonesia — into the country’s rapidly growing megacities.
To accommodate that enormous migration, the country has invested billions of dollars in massive infrastructure projects. Some are already complete, while others are still in the works.From highways that span the continent and the largest wind-power base in the world to enormous airports and new cities in the desert, China is showing what it really means to do big things.
The Jiaozhou Bay Bridge:-
This $16 billion structure is the world’s longest cross-sea bridge, stretching nearly 26 miles almost the length of a marathon.
The Beijing Shanghai High Speed Railway:-
This the world’s longest high-speed rail project to have been constructed in a single phase. It’s construction took $35 Billion.
The Shanghai Yangshan Deep Water Port Project:-
It is an ongoing construction project that aims to handle the largest container ships in the world by 2024. By 2015 it was already transporting 36.5 million shipping containers. It’s cost is $12 Billion.
Pearl River Delta mega city:-
By 2030, China plans to combine 42 million people from a nine-city region into one giant megacity in the Pearl River Delta. The population is expected to hit 80 million by the time construction ends. This project will cost an estimated $322 Billion.
Asian Highways Network:-
China is one out of 32 countries that signed an agreement for the construction of the Asian Highways Network, which will span the continent and reach Europe. It’s cost is going to be $43 Billion.
