The day the longest bridge was opened – level 3


The Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge, located in China, was officially opened to the public on June 30, 2011. It is a high-speed railway bridge that spans a distance of 164 kilometers. It is also the longest bridge in the world.

The bridge was constructed in just four years, and it involved over 10,000 workers. It was designed to withstand earthquakes and strong winds.

The bridge has helped to shorten travel time between Beijing and Shanghai from 10 hours to just five hours.

Difficult words: span (to go from one side to the other), involve (to be part of something), withstand (to be able to stay unharmed during difficult times).

What impressive feat was achieved with the construction of the Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge, and how has it impacted travel time between Beijing and Shanghai?
