An article by Sean O’Grady in the Independent looks at the impact of a 36 kilometer bridge that connects Eastern China with Shanghai. O’Grady believes that the Hangzhou Bay Bridge will create a huge sprawling city changing the whole region:

This will mark another step along the road whereby eastern China, the Shanghai-Nanjing-Hangzhou triangle, becomes one vast sprawling conurbation, a “Greater Shanghai”, sucking in poor migrant workers from the countryside. Think of 19th-century Manchester or New York at the turn of the 20th century and, with some multiplication, you have an idea of the scale of the movement of humanity fast approaching.
