While the Chinese economy has been slowing for the past 12 months, one must marvel at the speed and efficiency of their infrastructure build-out. This is also one reason to continue to monitor the development of the One Belt & Road Initiative.

Between 2011 and 2013, china used 50% more cement than the United States in the 20th century.

Of the world’s 100 highest bridges, 81 are in China, including some unfinished ones.

In 2016 alone, China added 26,100 bridges on roads, including 363 “extra large” ones with an average length of about a mile, government figures show.

China opens around 50 high bridges each year. The entire rest of the world opens ten.

China also has the world’s longest bridge, the 102-mile Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge, a high-speed rail viaduct running parallel to the Yangtze River, and is nearing completion of the world’s longest sea bridge, a 14-mile cable-stay bridge skimming across the Pearl River Delta, part of a 22-mile bridge and tunnel crossing that connects Hong Kong and Macau with mainland China.
