Top 20 longest bridges in the world

Top 20 longest bridges in the world

A bridge is a structure built to span a physical obstacle, such as a body of water, valley, or road, without closing the way underneath.

It is constructed for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle, usually something that can be detrimental to cross otherwise.

There is no standard way to measure the total length of a bridge. Some bridges that fall in the top 20 longest bridge category are measured from the beginning of the entrance ramp to the end of the exit ramp.

Some of the top 20 longest bridges are measured from shoreline to shoreline. Yet others use the length of the total construction involved in building the bridge

Here are the top 20 longest bridges in the world.
