The Longest Suspension Bridges In The World

Bridges play an important role for humanity. Their presence reduces the time spent on the road, allowing you to overcome obstacles (rivers, ponds, precipices) directly, which is valuable both from an economic and from a practical point of view. Bridges are distinguished by two main parameters: the transmitted load (railway, automobile, pedestrian, combined) and the static scheme (beam, truss, spacer, pontoon). Below is a list of the longest suspension bridges that are classified as spacer systems. Their main difference is the main supporting structure made of flexible elements working in tension; thus, the carriageway is suspended. The longest suspension bridges in the world →
