China’s Record-Setting Sea Bridge Has Some Loose Screws


It took four and a half years for China to build the world’s longest sea bridge (allegedly!), but maybe it should have been five. Shanghai Daily reports that the bridge is missing some crash barriers, and “bolts inserted to fasten the barriers were found to be loose or uncovered.” Hey, they never said it was the longest sea bridge you’d want to drive across, just the longest sea bridge.
