World's longest sea bridge opens in China...


  An engineering marvel the Jiaozhou bay bridge has finally opened up after four years of construction. The 26.4 miles long bridge links the port city of Qingdao to the island of Huangdao.

 

(but don't think about crossing it on foot, it's the length of a marathon)

  • At 26.4 miles long, it is five miles further than the distance between Dover and Calais
By Daily Mail Reporter (30th June, 2011)

China has opened the world's longest cross-sea bridge - which stretches five miles further than the distance between Dover and Calais.
The Jiaozhou Bay bridge is 26.4 miles long and links China's eastern port city of Qingdao to the offshore island Huangdao.
The road bridge, which is 110ft wide and is the longest of its kind, cost nearly £1billion to build.

Chinese TV reports said the bridge passed construction appraisals on Monday and it, along with an undersea tunnel, would be opened for traffic today.
It took four years to build the bridge, which is supported by more than 5,000 pillars across the bay, and it is almost three miles longer than the previous record-holder - the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana.

Scottish leader claims voters 'tricked' into staying in UK as politicians fall out over reform


LONDON - The debate over Scotland's future fizzled amid a bitter war of words Sunday, with the Scottish leader claiming his countrymen were "tricked" into rejecting independence in a referendum and Britain's three main political parties bickering over how to take political reform forward.
Alex Salmond, Scotland's outgoing independence leader, accused politicians in London of reneging on their promises to hand more power to Scots in a rare cross-party pact that he said played a crucial role in swinging the votes in favour of union in Thursday's vote.
His comments came after Prime Minister David Cameron stressed that plans to empower Scots should be linked to constitutional reform in England — a stance that fractured the fragile political consensus and drew attacks from across the spectrum.

Federal government's plan to revoke passports raises human rights concerns


MONTREAL - A human rights lawyer is raising concern about the federal government's plan to strip Canadian passports of those suspected of travelling abroad to join extremist groups.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada has confirmed it is "revoking and refusing passports to those going abroad to take part in terrorist activities."
Lorne Waldman, the head of the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers, says he's worried the government might use its powers arbitrarily.
Waldman likened the practice to Canada's secretive no-fly list, which civil liberties groups have argued violates the right to due process.
In the case of passport revocation, Waldman says there are at least legal avenues available for people to appeal such a decision through the courts.

Etihad announces flights to three new destinations



Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, will expand its global route network with the addition of Baku, Tbilisi and Dar es Salaam in the second half of 2015, increasing the total number of new destinations it has announced for next year to nine.

The fast-growing Caucasus region will be a major focus area for the Abu Dhabi-based airline next year, with a new service to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, being operated four times a week from October 1, while Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, will be served three times a week from October 2.

Both cities are famed for their warm hospitality and natural beauty, offering a breath-taking range of botanical gardens and parks, as well as historic attractions, museums and galleries.
