Engineering Marvels of China ! Pl don't skip to  read the write up at the end !

 
If China can do it, why not our nation? 65 yrs and very little progress on so many fronts except one-ie Corruption. How can a corrupt nation progress. Modi is the only hope. MYT
 
A MUST Read article

Aizhai Bridge in Hunan province is 336 m (1.102 ft.) high and has a 1,176 m (3,858 ft.) span.  It connects two traffic tunnels in the mountains, cutting the time needed to traverse the canyon from 30 minutes to 1 minute.  Construction took five years.  Work finished at the end of the last year, making it the world's longest and highest suspension bridge    Note that the person below is 1102 feet above the ground and is sweeping the dirt off this twenty first century Engineering marvel with a broom that was designed centuries ago and has no safety line.




A brave worker put the final touches on the Anzhaite Bridge.

Blasting and coating this steel superstructure in a couple of decades will be an interesting project.

Pedestrians walk along it on a special walkway under the road.

The bridge, which connects to two tunnels, was built to ease traffic.
