List of longest bridges in the world

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from List of bridges by length)
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the world's longest bridges more than two kilometres long sorted by their full length above land or water. "Span" refers to the longest spans without any ground support.

Note: There is no standard way to measure the total length of a bridge. Some bridges are measured from the beginning of the entrance ramp to the end of the exit ramp. Some are measured from shoreline to shoreline. Yet others are the length of the total construction involved in building the bridge. Since there is no standard, no ranking of a bridge should be assumed because of its position in the list. Additionally, numbers are merely estimates and measures in U.S. customary units (feet) may be imprecise due to conversion rounding.
