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)

3118 Top 10 Most Expensive Single Objects in the World

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.

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

194 Top 10 Most Expensive Single Objects in the World

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

    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

  • ianement

    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.

      Sure.. and what a shame you were left out

  • John

    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…

  • Traderver

    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….

  • Knighthawk

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

    nice article and video.. thanks for sharing.

    Great work…

    hydrogen collider video is excellant
    nicely explained
    do see it

  • Not my real name

    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

      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.

    where do i bid

    i was looking through this drinking, when it came to $157 Billion for the

     international Space Station  I almost died

  • Ma

    its has to be a single (one) product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Muziekreak1980

      ONE bridge, ONE particle accelerator

      Hereby i conclude your lesson, math for newbies.

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

    • Ross Taylor

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

      • CanDrew

        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.

        • josh

          In Canada, state-owned companies are called crown corporations, even in Quebec, but ‘state-owned’ is still fine.

  • Gman

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

    • A Phillips

      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.

  • Metal god

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

  • Antony Lewis66

    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.

    • Marl

      Water and Air are valuable.
      NOPE! Water and Air are invaluable!!!!!

    fantastic….very well picturised and very easy understandable….Such graphics will surely help our young children to pursue SCIENCE which is always intriguing and very satisfying as the results are helpful to one and all……Dr P C RAO…PUNE

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

    thats racist

    So thats what $157 billion dollars look like…

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

    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.

    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.

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