Which is the longest bridge in the world?

The Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge in China is the world’s longest bridge with a length of 165 kilometres. It is a part of the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway and has played a crucial role in reducing the travel time between Beijing and Shanghai.

It is a girder bridge, a common form of bridge construction that is found all over the world. The bridge only took about four years to materialize as girders generally increase the speed of construction.

Due to its extraordinary length, the bridge is spread across different geographical terrains and building it required remarkable engineering knowledge. It was designed by the China Road and Bridge Corporation, which is a section of the China Communications Construction Company. This project was completed on time and was fully built by the November of 2010.

It was officially opened for the public the next year, in June.
