List of longest arch bridge spans

This list of the longest arch bridge spans ranks the worlds arch bridges by the length of their main span. The length of the main span is the most common way to rank bridges as it usually correlates with the engineering complexity involved in designing and constructing the bridge. If one bridge has a longer span than another it does not necessarily mean that the bridge is longer from shore to shore or from abutment to abutment.

List of longest bridges

This is a list of the worlds longest bridges more than three kilometres long sorted by their full length above land or water. "Span" refers to the longest spans without any ground support.

List of longest cable-stayed bridge spans

This list ranks the worlds cable-stayed bridges by the length of main span, i.e. the distance between the suspension towers. The length of the main span is the most common way to rank cable-stayed bridges. If one bridge has a longer span than another, it does not mean that the bridge is the longer from shore to shore, or from anchorage to anchorage. However, the size of the main span does often correlate with the height of the towers, and the engineering complexity involved in designing and constructing the bridge. Cable-stayed bridges with more than three spans are generally more complex, ...

List of longest cantilever bridge spans

This list of cantilever bridges ranks the worlds cantilever bridges by the length of their main span. A cantilever bridge is a bridge built using cantilevers: structures that project horizontally into space, supported on only one end.

List of longest continuous truss bridge spans

This list of continuous bridge spans ranks the worlds continuous truss bridges in two First by the length of main span and second by the total length of continuous truss spans. This list includes bridges that act primarily as a continuous truss. These bridges may appear to be - or may incorporate elements of - a different design. For example, the list includes the Francis Scott Key Bridge which incorporates an arch shape into the design, but is continuous across multiple spans. The Key Bridge acts first as a continuous truss bridge and secondarily as an arch bridge. This list does not incl ...
