Bridges are one of the most innovative inventions out there, connection two pieces of land by crossing the massive hurdle called sea/river is just a surreal thing to think about but thanks to the human craft, bridges got made and are constantly developing. Nowadays, we are making bridges to connect two places, water bodies are not necessarily needed for a bridge to be made.
Countries are constantly striving to build a bridge that’d be much grand and big than the other country’s bridge; in short, bridges are one of the units to compare development. And do you know why?
Because it takes a lot of human effort to make a bridge stand tall, it is not at all easy, thus a bridge reflects a country’s ability.
With that being said, let us stroll a little and find out more about world’s five longest bridges:-
1). Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge
The 164.8 kilometers (102.4 mi) long viaduct on the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway: Danyang Kunshan Grand Bridge is the longest bridge in the world. It crosses canals, rivers, and several lakes.
