If you haven't seen it I would recommend you watch Supersized Earth series, it was on BBC 2 but is on Iplayer i believe. The sheer size of some of their projects is eye watering, they are building a raised aqua duct from the South to the North 700 miles long! They built a road ( The G50 ) that is 1200 miles long and includes the worlds highest bridges 1/2 kilometre high! In fact 9 of them, they have built from the 100 miles of express way roads they had in 1989 to 60,000 miles now!
