Top 10 Longest Bridges In The World

A bridge is defined as a type of physical structure that connects two areas that has an impassable obstacle in between them, i.e., a valley. It also can be used to connect villages, cities and other populated areas to each other. The best bridge uses the shortest distance between two locations.

Bridges can be found all over the world, and they are used in many different ways. Moreover, you’ll find bridges that rarely look alike. These bridges can be used for ferrying trains, automobiles or pedestrians. Because our geography is so unique, there are bridges that are longer than others. China is currently the leader when it comes to the longest bridges.
