These projects make you think that it could also be happen in the real. So now we are going to lists some top megs projects that are just the best in the world. These maximum projects will completed in 2025. So, without wasting any time,
International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor. It is the world’s first nuclear fusion reactor, manufactured in France. Most of the people know about this , and some who don’t let me explain. ITER is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering mega project, which will be the world’s largest magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment. It is an experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor that is being built next to the Cadarache facility in Saint- l`es-Durance in Provence, southern France.
The ITER was formed in 24 October 2007 and Headquarters in Saint- l`es-Durance in Provence, southern France. Its director-general is Bernard Bigot. The Heating power of reactor is 50 MW and fusion power is 500 MW, whereas its discharge duration is up to 1000s. The construction was started in 2013 and will accepted to be completed in 2025. The total budget of this project is $14 billion by June 2015 and construction and operations is expected to be in excess of 20 billion euro. The US department of Energy has estimated the total constructions cost to 2015 be $ 65 billion.
The projects have overall 30 to 35 countries directly and indirectly but it is funded and run by seven countries in the world. These countries are – India, European Union, Russia, USA, China, Japan and South Korea. The ITER goal is to demonstrate the scientific and technologies feasibility of fusion energy for peaceful use.

The main thing that with Los Angeles to San Francisco services will start in 2033 and the budget will increase to $98.1 billion. So that is the power of public funded project.
10. South-North Water Transfer Project, China
South-North Water Transfer Project is a multi decade infrastructure mega projects in China. Ultimately it aims to channel 44.8 billion cubic meter of fresh water annually from the Yangtze River in southern China to the more arid and industrialized north through three canal systems. It is because the north of China is home to almost 50 percent of China’s population but has only about 20 percent of the country’s resources. To remedy this imbalance, China has funded the construction of three huge canals, each more than 600 miles long and will carry water to north from China’s largest rivers. In 2014 $79 billion had been spent and accepted to be more. This project is also expensive than ITER.
