YEONGJONG GRAND BRIDGE, SOUTH KOREA
Project Name: Yeongjong Grand Bridge, South Korea
South Korea, Asia
The Yeongjong Grand Bridge in South Korea is the most expensive bridge in Asia. As far as bridges go it’s relatively young, only opening to the public in 2000 after a five-year construction period that cost the South Korean government a whopping $1.9 billion. As the name suggests, the bridge was built to connect Yeongjong island to the South Korean mainland. In total, the bridge traverses a length of 4.42 km, making it a testament to modern engineering.
