"According to wire service reports, China's Communications Minister Zhang Chunxian said China would invest US$241.7 billion on building 34 highways over 20 to 30 years, with one linking the mainland to Taipei.
'Under the 85,000-kilometers highway plan, there would be a special corridor linking the mainland to Taipei,' he told a news conference yesterday.
Asked how this architectural feat could be accomplished, he said: 'Taipei could be linked by building a tunnel or something else.' "
Scalper comes up to me on the street today and tries to sell me a year pass for the China - Taiwan tunnel. Heh. Do I look like I just fell off the banana boat yesterday? Bought mine from a kiosk, and got fifty percent off.
