I feel like alot of countries could make bank on tourism doing this. I feel like this could actually be worth it.

Not to mention if literally anything on the bridge goes wrong, there is nothing out there to help you. Get into an accident? Cool, nearest hospital is about a 30 minute drive away. Terrorist Blockade, Might as well drive off. So many things could go wrong on the open bodies of water...

False. The globe spins on its axis at about 1000mph and 24 hours later you see the new day the entire equator is 24k miles in length so from southern Africa to southers southern amaerica is not 32k miles.

And you could take a road trip with a couple small ferries with the exception of from Magadan to Anchorage and then you would be set
Govind Raman (15 days ago)
Technically there is an archipelago between Papua New Guinea and Australia. There could be seperate bridges with that, and the longest bridge there would be is 45 kilometers. So Australia could be connected to the road system.

$233 Billion is a very conservative estimate considering you have to build (and maintain) roads across the tundra, alaskan mountain range, and dangerous swamplands. I'd say the cost would come to half a trillion or more.

If Indonesia have Sunda strait bridge and connected with Malaysia by Malacca strait bridge, then Indonesia (especially Java and Sumatra) can be connected by Global Highway.

Sabian Drumski (23 days ago)
Sounds good but as an australian I have noticed too many countries drive on the wrong side. Riding on the left developed when men wore swords. Passing on the left enabled travellers knights etc to draw their sword and strike their opponent with the right hand which makes sense because more people are right handed.
