As discussed in the first piece, China is going through some major changes. Over the next several years, the Chinese will relocate almost 250 million citizens — the equivalent of Indonesia’s total population — into the burgeoning cities. As part of the reported relocation, China has put billions into new infrastructure projects. Here are more of the projects you may want to check out should you ever travel there.
The project had a price tag of $3.5 billion. It was reportedly the “largest single construction project” in the country. Terminal 3 was added in 2008 just in time for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. It’s the second largest terminal in the world after Dubai International Airport’s own Terminal 3.
China spent $35 billion on the Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Railway. It’s reputed to be the world’s longest high-speed railway to be built in “in a single phase.”
The Beijing South Railway Station cost the country $6.3 billion. It is not only the largest station in the city but also one of the largest stations in Asia as well.
