World’s longest cable-stayed bridge unveiled by Russia
Russia has brought out the world’s longest cable-stayed bridge (1,104 m) linking Vladivostok to Russky Island.
Russia is spending 20 billion US dollars in pursuit of its Soviet-era dream of turning the port into a Russian version of San Francisco to pull massive investment.
This troubled multi-billion investment is directed at reviving the country’s distant Far East.
