TOP 3 MEGA PROJECTS IN THE WORLD-UNDERCONSTRUCTION

 MEGA PROJECTS IN THE WORLD


Recent advances in digital technology and construction engineering have made it possible for countries to initiate bigger and more complex projects.

The largest and most exciting mega projects that are currently under construction.

Japan's Hi-tech maglev train which holds the world speed record of 603 kilometers an hour.The largest green city being built in the middle east and china ambitious projects that cover over 60 countries.

CHUO SHINKANSEN MAGLEV TRAIN-JAPAN


Japan is one of the world's most developed countries known for its innovation. Today the most efficient way to move around Japan is by train considering most of the country is covered by mountain ranges. Their train system is simply one of the best in the world.

First high-speed train network in 1964 the first line was built to connect japan's two most important cities Tokyo and Osaka.
Shinkansen is the word used to describe bullet trains and it literally means a new trunk line.


The design of the bullet train with its needle-nose aerodynamics shape is iconic. the bullet has been getting faster and the travel times have been getting shorter a 350 kilometer trip from Tokyo to Nagoya using a bullet train currently just takes an hour and 20 minutes however that's not fast enough for a country where time is everything that's why japan wanted to cut the time by 50% their solution was to build the Chuo shinkansen megaproject, a new train that will use cutting edge maglev technology.

What exactly is a maglev train? Maglev is short for magnetic levitation a maglev train works by using two sets of magnets one set to repel and push the train up off the track and the other set to move the elevated train ahead this means that the train can take advantage of a lack of friction to achieve a normal operation speed of over 500 km/h. it currently holds the world's record of 603 km/h with its experimental maglev train series.

The construction of the Chuo shinkansen began in 2014 and is to estimated to cost almost 90 billion dollars 
the commercial service between Tokyo and Nagoya is due to begin in 2027 and the trip which currently takes over an hour and 20 mins will only take 40 minutes.
There are also plans to extend the line from Nagoya to Osaka by 2045. 
Here something interesting about japan's high-speed rails over 60 years of operation they have zero fatal accidents making them one of the safest forms of transportation in the world.
The new maglev train service is designed to maintain that spotless record.

LUSAIL CITY -QATAR




The Lusail city mega-project is found in Qatar a small desert country in the Arab peninsula with a population of less than three million people
the harsh climatic condition forced the nation to seek others ways os sustaining itself 
Fortunately, Qatar has the world's third-largest gas reserve and is one of the largest exporters of the natural gas 
Because of its low population and high revenue from oil and gas, it's considered to be the richest country in the world today. In order to anticipate the need to house a growing population the idea for Lusail city was born in 2005 located along the coast
the city is 23 km from the capital Doha and is designed to house almost a half million people.
Although the idea was there since 2005 the project really took off in 2010 when Qatar won the FIFA world cup they made history becoming the first country in the middle east to be selected to host the soccer event.


Lusail city is a futuristic project as part of the cutters vision 2030 .its being built with the desire to create a modern and ambitious society. It's the first green city in the country and the largest development that has been undertaken in the middle east to date. Although it stands as an independent urban center,Lusail will be connected to Doha by subways and state of the art train lines.

Developers expect visitors to be attracted by the city marina one of the biggest in the region as well as its shopping malls business districts artificial islands and amusement park
it will have residential buildings, hospitals, schools, mosques, and 22 hotels built to international standard
as a world cup host, Lusail city will also have one of the biggest stadium in the middle east. the stadium centerpiece structure is designed to mirror the ancient Arab crafts of bowl weaving and the saddle forum roof floats above the concrete bowl.
The stadium will cost 45 billion dollars to build.
Lusail city will be on of the most important cities hosting the main stadium teams and fans during the 2022 world cup .its existence isn't necessarily dependent on any tourism boom the tournament will bring because of its focus on sustainability it's expected that the city will continue thriving beyond the tournament.


ONE BELT ONE ROAD-SILK ROAD-CHINA



China has been the fastest-growing economy in the world since the 1980s with an average annual growth rate of almost 10%
this transformation has influenced every aspect of china's society, culture, and economy.

As a result, China has become the world's largest economy as well as a leader in manufacturing and trade.
in 2013 china president Xi Jinping announced the new silk road and that is also now called the belt and road initiate its a brand new trade corridor that consists of a global infrastructure network of roads, railways, air, and seaports.
 the land routes that labeled the belt and maritime routes labeled the road involve countries on three continents and more than half of the world's population.ITs the largest infrastructure project in modern history.




The inspiration from the project came from the ancient silk road an old trade route that once ran between China and the West during the days of roman empires.
China has taken the knowledge from the past and revived it in the present to protect its future relations with the nations and they are going big with the project altogether estimated to cost a whopping 900 billion dollars signaling in the new era of globalization still ambitious n Jan 2018 china announced another road to the belt polar silk globe here china wants to build new shipping routes in the artic together with Russia this means setting up energy and infrastructure projects in the arctic circle.
