China Tuesday opened the world's longest sea-crossing bridge linking Hong Kong to the mainland, a feat of engineering carrying immense economic and political significance. Chinese President Xi Jinping presided over a ceremony in the city of Zhuhai to open the 55-kilometer-long bridge linking it to the semi-autonomous regions of Hong Kong and Macau. The bridge's opening comes a month after the inauguration of a new high-speed rail link from Hong Kong to mainland China that runs along a different, shorter route. The line has vastly decreased travel times but raised concerns on Beijing's growing influence because mainland Chinese law applies within part of the line's Hong Kong terminus.
