It was believed that the Qingdao Haiwan Bridge broke the record of Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in the American state of Louisiana, in which the Qingdao Haiwan is almost three miles longer than the previous record-holder.

Moreover, the huge structure associates the center of the successful port city of Qingdao located in the Shandong Province with Huangdao community, straddling Jiaozhou Bay, reports added.

Apparently, the bridge is likely to bear 30,000 cars a day and can reach the city of Qingdao and the town of Huangdao by between 20 and 30 minutes.

The Qingdao Haiwan Bridge was built through the latest advances of Chinese engineering in just four years at a cost of £55.5 billion, according to reports.
