Chinese President Xi Jinping has officially opened the world’s longest sea-crossing bridge, nine years after construction first began.
It is an impressive piece of engineering…
Including its access roads, the bridge spans 55km (34 miles) and connects Hong Kong to Macau and the mainland Chinese city of Zhuhai.
It cost about $20bn (£15.3bn) to build this bridge.
The bridge includes a 7 km tunnel that goes 44.5m deep into the sea to allow sea vessels to also cross.
Two artificial islands were also created on the sea.

Engineering is everything… We got ‘Dubai’ and you people will not let us have peace.
