List: Top Ten Longest Single Span Bridges in the World

Date: as at July 2009

Source: PONTE SULLO STRETTO

Base: All single span bridges carrying traffic in the world

Notes: The Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge in Japan heads the list of the top 10 longest single spand bridges in the world. Europe's longest singel span bridge is the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark, although current plans for a bridge between mainland Italy and Sicily across the Messina straights would surpass it if given the go ahead. The Tsing Ma (Hong Kong to China), has the longest span for a bridge with both road and train traffic. Click here for some nice pictures of these bridges.
