Top 10 Most Expensive Single Objects in the World


Here we our today with the list of Top 10 World’s Most Expensive Single Objects. We have tried our level best to gather information from various sources, and inter-tallied them. This list is not limited to objects of commercial use. It is for the sole purpose of identifying expensive man-made objects and the respective economic costs involved in building them.

10. Oresund Bridge (Cost:$6 Billion)

The Øresund or Öresund Bridge  is a combined twin-track railroad and four-lane highway bridge-tunnel across the Öresund strait. The Øresund Bridge connects Sweden and Denmark, and it is the longest highway and railroad bridge in Europe. The Øresund Bridge also connects two major Metropolitan Areas: those of the Danish capital city of Copenhagen and the major Swedish city of Malmö. Furthermore, the Øresund Bridge connects the highway network of Scandinavia with those of Central and Western Europe.

  • Official name: Øresundsbroen, Öresundsbron
  • Carries: Four lanes of European route E20 Double track Oresund Railway Line
  • Locale: Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden
  • Designer: Georg Rotne
  • Design: Cable-stayed bridge
  • Total length: 7,845 metres (25,738 ft)
  • Width: 23.5 metres (77.1 ft)
  • Longest span: 490 metres (1,608 ft)
  • Cost: $6 Billion
  • Country: Denmark, Sweden
  • Year of completion: 2000

9. Large Hadron Collider (Cost: $6 Billion)

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It is expected that it will address themost fundamental questions of physics, advancing our understanding of the deepest laws of nature.

The LHC lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as much as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the Franco-Swiss border nearGeneva, Switzerland. This synchrotron is designed to collide opposing particle beams of either protons at an energy of 7 teraelectronvolts(1.12 microjoules) per particle, or lead nuclei at an energy of 574 TeV (92.0 µJ) per nucleus. The term hadron refers to particles composed of quarks.

  • Country: Switzerland
  • Year of completion: 2008
  • Cost: $6 Billion

    Awesome post kellie, it's been a long-time since I've been on here. I see that nobody has lost their passion. Good to be back.

  2. Austin says:

    I am going to link my blog to this website. I think my visitors will come across it quite beneficial given the well written subject matter. Thanks

  3. ianement says:

    I have been previously looking for some time for a suitable study relevant to this kind of topic . Exploring in Google I ultimately stumbled on this blog. Looking at this information I'm pleased to imply that I have a great impression I stubled onto exactly what I wanted. I'll ensure to don't forget this website and look on a constant basis.

    Really an awesome yet informative post to go through. As it seems that there are things that are expensive to built but the rate of their return on investment is quite good like the construction of "Itaipu Dam" which has provided 90% of the energy consumed by Paraguay and 19% of that consumed by Brazil in 2008. Thanks for the post…

  6. Traderver says:

    Amazing cost to construct these impressive objects on planet earth. I am glad to see this post in which you have shared some great information that is not known to many people. Thanks for sharing it and keep posting like this….

    you forgot boston's big dig tunnel… like 20billion+

  8. Thangaraju says:

    nice article and video.. thanks for sharing.

  9. dr manoj vaidya says:

    hydrogen collider video is excellant
    nicely explained
    do see it

  10. Not my real name says:

    Are any of these 'single objects' any more than corporations are 'single objects'… and are valued at much more? You might as well say that the planet Earth is a 'single object' and value it ad the entire wealth of the world.

    • saikaku says:

      I only happened to read this article 3 years after it was written, but that was my thought, as well…while the article was well-written, these are not what I would consider “Single Objects” either – they are all, in fact, large scale engineering projects. I would consider “Single Objects” to be, say, the Hope Diamond, or the Venus de Milo.

    Fantastic clear and ” basic ” explanation for anyone to understand-well done -bz.

     state-owned utility Hydro-Québec   Canada doesn’t have states so it should read Provincially owned.

    • Ross Taylor says:

      No, it means it’s owned by the state of Canada. Nice try though.

      • CanDrew says:

        Hydro-Québec[4] is a government-owned public utility established in 1944 by the Government of Quebec. Based in Montreal, the company oversees generation, transmission anddistribution of electricity for all of Quebec – Wikipedia. // It is owned by the Province of Québec. Perhaps not a State per se but even here in Canada, HQ is often dubbed a state-owned utility.

  18. Gman says:

    Funny that all these projects are about non-fossile, energy, traffic or science – exept the both us-projects: oil and military. rotten!

    • A Phillips says:

      The US also contributes a very large share to #1 on the list of course. But it is sad that there aren’t any large scale, sustainable infrastructure or research projects currently going on in the states to make the list. I think that’ll change. Though what would it cost in today’s money to build all those New Deal projects? Surely they could make the list.

    you are a total twat…! didny see that comin did ya..?

  20. Antony Lewis66 says:

    There is a big difference between cost/expense and value.

    Diamonds and Gold are expensive, Water and Air are valuable.

    The fact the enviornment which maintain our life does not even get a mention makes me realise how little the world thinks the environment is worth.

    The Amazon and other great forests that convert CO2 to oxygen for us, the oceans of the world that balance air, pH and absorb shocks in the PKN cycles and finally the polar caps that absorb vast energy and help maintain global temperatures through the ie and absorbs significant sums of CO2 in their waters and permafrosts.

    where did you hear this because this is pretty far fetched.

  24. […] Outer space is a pretty sweet place in the first place, but now it’s become a little sweeter with the discovery of simple sugar molecules floating in the gas around a star some 400 light-years away. That is definitely a grand distance to travel in order to borrow a cup of sugar from the intergalactic neighbors. This finding could be another step closer to finding other intelligent life in that expansive universe of ours, or a careless astronaut could have spilt some groceries on the way to the International Space Station.

  25. Joe says:

    The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has long surpassed the price of $100 billion. I have no idea where you got these unrealistic numbers from.

  26. Bala Abasarahana says:

    So thats what $157 billion dollars look like…

  27. wr says:

    What about the English Channel Chunnel? Or the Panama Canal in inflation adjusted dollars?

    Glaciation cannot be denied without PARTICIPIAL. You have just provided the evidence needed to prove the Hadron Effect on ‘xz-cone’ silence at the speed of light.

    Please be informed that there is a 25 Km road way built in Srilanka very recently which was opened and it is is said to be the most expensive road way built considering the cost involved per 1 KM basis.

  34. Ed B says:

    You are an idiot

  35. lha says:

    They tried one of those super-colliders in Texas about 30 years ago,condemning thousands of acres,then spent about the equal amount of money to shut it down as they spent to 1/2 way finish it. Many people were”immanent-domained”out of their farms,ranches,and homes at pennies on the dollar. Many billions of dollars were spent for nothing. Politicians are greedy a–holes.

  36. Is this another weird racial belief held by scientologist. If true, My vietnamese GF is so toying with me everytime we have an argument!
    What a bitch…
