Today, bridges have become not just a means of moving through the rivers, seas and various depressions, but also a matter of admiration. And which of the hundreds of bridges is the largest in length?

It is located in the remarkable province of Jiangsu, in China. The bridge lies between the cities of Shanghai and Nanjing. The construction takes place mainly above the ground, and only 9 km of the structure is located above the Yangcheng Lake. The bridge includes 2 railway lines, each running in its direction.
Construction of the bridge started in 2008 and continued until 2010.The railway construction was commissioned in 2011.The cost of construction is 10 billion dollars. This bridge is even included in the Guinness Book of Records.
The Qingdao Bridge is the second longest bridge that is also located in China. It connects the city of Qingdao and the Huangdao area, connecting both shores of Qingdao Gulf. The bridge has 6 lanes for traffic, 3 on each side.
The construction of the bridge was started in 2007, and it was completed in 2011, in which the bridge itself was put into operation. Construction of the bridge amounted to about 8.25 billion dollars.
This bridge allows you to reduce travel time by only half an hour, which actually caused a storm of controversy in the society, in view of the fact that 30 minutes on the road is not so much, and the amount spent for its construction could be invested in more usefuland expedient construction. Disputes are controversial, but, nevertheless, a bridge "rolls around" 30 thousand cars a day.
The largest pedestrian bridge is not in China, but in Russia - in Russia! There is a bridge in the city of Sochi, becoming part of the famous "Sky Park" over the Ahshtyr gorge. Of course, the bridge does not reach even half a kilometer, but it is also pedestrian. Construction of the bridge was completed in the summer of 2014, and lasted about two years.
The height of the bridge is 218 meters. The bridge is capable to sustain blows of elements and simultaneous finding on it of 3000 persons. The design includes observation platforms, and is also actively used for extreme jumping rope jumping.
It is these bridge structures that are the longest on the planet today, but as a rule, such results are short, since when building new bridges, they are now trying not only to connect the two banks, but also to beat some previous record.
