World's Longest Bridge Spans

World's Longest Bridge Spans

Longest Bridge Spans are categorised in the following tables according to the structural type of the main span. The "Span" means the main span of a bridge = centre to centre distance of adjacent towers, pylons, piers or supports given in metres. It does not mean the total length or overall length of multi-span bridges. If the lengths of several spans in one bridge are equal, it is mentioned in Notes column. Year means the year of completion or intended completion if known.
