China is like a sleeping giant. And when she awakes, she shall astonish the world. Napoleon Bonaparte, 1803.
Well, The Giant is awake and walk with giant steps on the mountain of the 21Century!
China is planning to create the world's biggest mega city by merging nine cities to create a metropolis twice the size of Wales with a population of 42 million.

The new mega-city will cover a large part of China's manufacturing heartland, stretching from Guangzhou to Shenzhen and including Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Jiangmen, Huizhou and Zhaoqing. Together, they account for nearly a tenth of the Chinese economy.
Over the next six years, around 150 major infrastructure projects will mesh the transport, energy, water and telecommunications networks of the nine cities together, at a cost of some 2 trillion yuan (£190 billion). An express rail line will also connect the hub with nearby Hong Kong.

Wow that is just amazing!

I wonder how much pollution this new merged city would cause, or if they are planning on using more modern "green" technology.

It will be great for the people of the region with all the jobs it will create. Good for them
