|The Longest Bridges in The World|
200,000 people gathered in San Francisco's streets on May 27, 1937, to commemorate the official opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the modern wonders of the world and a significant engineering feat at the time. The Golden Gate Bridge, at over 4,000 feet long, is currently not even listed among the top ten longest bridges in the world.
The top 7 longest bridges in the world today are listed below. Think carefully about both the past and the future as you read it.
7. Beijing Grand Bridge (158,000 ft)
The massive, sprawling Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway project, which was finished in 2010, included the construction of the Grand Bridge in the Chinese capital city of Beijing. The Beijing Grand Bridge makes it onto this list of the Top 7 Bridges in spite of the fact that it only serves the city of Beijing and the suburbs of Beijing.
6. Bang Na Expressway (177,000 ft)
The Changhua-Kaohsiung Viaduct in Taiwan, which opened in 2004, has since supplanted the Thai bridge as the longest road in the world. The Thai bridge was the longest when it was finished, in 2000. The last road on this list is the Bang Na (officially the Burapha Withi Expressway), a toll road that connects Bangkok. It was constructed by a group of Thai, German, American, and Swedish interests.

5. Weinan Weihe Grand Bridge (261,000 ft)
This enormous structure, which is a part of the Zhengzhou-Xi'an High-Speed Railway megacomplex, manages to cross the Wei River twice.
The bridge was finished in 2008, and until two other bridges (both a part of the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway project) overtook it in 2010, it was the longest bridge in the world.
4. Tianjin Grand Bridge (373,000 ft)
The Tianjin Grand Bridge, one of the aforementioned bridges finished in 2010, was inaugurated in 2011. The fourth-largest city in China, Tianjin, is situated between Beijing and Shanghai and along the coast. In the future, keep an eye and ear out for the name because it refers to a world-class city with an exciting future.
3. Cangde Grand Bridge (380,000 ft)
It too was finished in 2010 and is a bridge that is a part of the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway project. The bridge was constructed to withstand earthquakes and has nearly 3,100 piers. Because both bridges continue to receive minor maintenance and construction projects, Cangde and Tianjin compete for the third spot on most lists.
2. Changhua-Kaohsiung Viaduct (516,000 ft) - Top Longest Bridges
One of Taiwan's rebellious polity's greatest accomplishments of any kind is the Changhua-Kaohshing Viaduct, which was built in 2004 and until 2010 held the record for longest bridge in the world. This bridge is a high-speed rail line that travels up and down the island's west coast as part of the Taiwan High Speed Rail network. Japanese technology was used by Taiwanese engineers to construct the entire line, including the bridge.
1. Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge (540,000 ft) - Top Longest Bridges
This bridge was constructed in 2010 as a part of the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway project, which has been a significant component of this list. Shanghai, China's financial center, and Nanjing, a neighboring city with a metro area containing over 30 million people, are connected by the Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge. Archaeologists are quick to point out that China had two cradles of civilization: one on the Yellow River and one on the Yangtze River. The two cities are located in the Yangtze River Delta, one of the cradles of civilization.
The Delta is China's economic growth, productivity, and creative engine and is home to about 140 million people. The Danyang-Kunshan Grand Bridge's engineering achievement offers tangible evidence of the Delta's contributions to humanity.
