  Highways are constructed in China at a rate exceeding 4,000 kilometers a year, long enough to span the entire United States. In the mid-1990’s, 17% of the world’s construction cranes can be found in Shanghai. Sharply falling property prices notwithstanding, welders can be seen laboring on high rise structures at midnight, like stars in the sky. More office space was built in Shanghai in five years than fast-growing Hong Kong managed in fifty. In 2002 Shanghai planners abruptly restricted building heights, because they found the city sinking under the weight of real estate. The four-lane highway between Shanghai and Nanjing, empty when newly built and criticized for being a waste of money, became so congested and earned so much in tolls that five years later work was begun to double its capacity. Because tolls are charged according to the size of trucks, overloading became so severe that some roads constructed according to world-class standards are damaged in no time. Congestion occurs at each and every seaport in the country. In 2005, the world’s longest and the second longest sea crossing bridges were under construction at the same time and in the same area.

  今天在中国,高速公路每年建造四千多公里,足以横跨整个美国。九十年代中、后期,世界百分之十七的建筑起重机集中于上海。那时楼价急跌,但午夜还可见到镕焊工人在高高的钢架上操作,彷佛天上的星星。上海在五年间建成的商业楼宇面积,比发展得快的香港的五十年还要多。二○○二年,上海的策划者突然大幅减低楼宇建筑的容积率,因为发觉高楼大厦的重量使该市下沉。从南京到上海的四线公路,启用时因为车辆稀少而被批评浪费,但五年后交通堵塞,进帐可观,要扩宽为八线了。因为车辆按大小收费,载货超重严重,世界级的公路很快就被压坏了。整个国家的所有港口都要排队落货。二○○五年,地球最长与次长的跨海大桥同时建造,而且是在同一地区。
