China Building our Roads and Bridges

 

Did you really think these jobs would go to Americans?

 

 




New San Francisco bridge built in China to be shipped to US

First, China made cut-price clothes and knick-knacks. Then it learned how to make mobile phones and iPads. Now it is making a 2,050ft-long bridge spanning the San Francisco bay.

 

Next month, four enormous steel skeletons, the last of the 12 segments of the bridge, will be shipped 6,500 miles from Shanghai to San Francisco before being assembled on site.

The bridge, which will connect San Francisco to Oakland on the other side of the bay, is a sign of how China has moved on from building roads and ports in Africa and the developing world and is now aggressively bidding for, and winning, major construction and engineering projects in the United States and Europe.

After building forests of skyscrapers in Beijing and Shanghai, showpiece buildings like the Bird's Nest stadium and the Guangzhou Opera House, and a high-speed rail network that is the envy of the world, Chinese construction companies are flush with cash and confidence. This week, Wen Jiabao, the Chinese premier, lobbied David Cameron to give the contract for the UK's new high speed rail link to a Chinese company.

Definitely not on our side, Davol.

They should not have the power to sell off our roads and infrastructure but they are doing it, yes.

A shortage of welders?  Give me a break.  They have not done everything possible to keep these infrastructure jobs here.  The guidelines have too many loopholes.  Any 'official' who makes the decision to give the contract to a non-American business needs to get the boot.  Crazy day indeed, Vincent.
