Top 10 longest bridges in the world

science & technology

Building bridges has been part of our most outstanding technical engineering since the dawn of man. It all started with bridges forming naturally when continental plates shifted, enabling prehistoric humans to walk from one continent to another. That takes millions of years of course. Today we’re used to shorter building times. And the designs are a bit more technically challenging. Here’s our top 10 of the longest bridges in the world:
