The world's longest suspension bridges are listed according to the length of their main span (i.e. the length of suspended roadway between the bridge's towers). The length of main span is the most common method of comparing the sizes of suspension bridges, often correlating with the height of the towers and the engineering complexity involved in designing and constructing the bridge.[1] 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).

Suspension bridges have the longest spans of any type of bridge. Cable-stayed bridges, the next longest design, are practical for spans up to just over 1 kilometre. Therefore, the 17 longest bridges on this list are all currently the 17 longest spans of all types of vehicular bridges (other than floating pontoon bridges).

Since 1998 Akashi Kaikyō Bridge in Japan holds the record with its span of 1,991 metres (6,532 ft). The Çanakkale 1915 Bridge of the Dardanelles, currently under construction in Turkey, is expected to surpass it with a span of 2,023 metres (6,637 ft).

Completed suspension bridges

This list includes only completed suspension bridges that carry automobiles or trains. It does not include cable-stayed bridges, footbridges, or pipeline bridges.

Planned and proposed bridges

Name Location Main
span
Status Notes
Gibraltar Bridge Spain to Morocco Very long Proposed Some designs have suspension spans of several miles. The suspension cables of a very long bridge might be suspended from the ends of cable-stayed struts extending diagonally from huge pylons. However, as of 2008, the feasibility of a tunnel is being considered instead.
HAFAST Sulafjorden, Norway 4,000 m (13,000 ft) Bridge under planning Will replace the ferry connecting Hareid and Sula, as well as being part of the national "Ferry-free E39" project. Expected start 2020 and finished 2024?
Sognebrua Sognefjorden, Norway 3,700 m (12,100 ft) Bridge under planning One of several proposals for crossing the 1,300-metre-deep (4,300 ft) fjord as part of making the E39 highway along Norway's west coast ferry-free. The bridge would utilise two towers 450 m tall and have a maximum clearance above water of 70 m. Plans call for the highway project, including this crossing, to finish by 2025.
Strait of Messina Bridge Sicily to mainland Italy 3,300 m (10,800 ft) Cancelled The project was cancelled on 11 October 2006 by the Romano Prodi-led government amid controversy concerning the bridge's cost.[111] The new government from 2008 led by Silvio Berlusconi wanted to pick up the project again. Preliminary works were to begin in December 2009. The main construction was expected to begin in 2012. As of February 2013, the project has again been cancelled.
Sunda Strait Bridge Java to Sumatra, Indonesia about 3,000 m (9,800 ft) Cancelled This project has been approved by the Indonesian government. If completed, it will not only be the world's longest suspension bridge (26 km), but will also have a main span of about 3,000 m (9,800 ft)—roughly fifty percent longer than the current record.[112]
Malacca Strait Bridge Peninsular Malaysia, Malaysia to Sumatra, Indonesia 2,600 m (8,500 ft) Preliminary work Joint project between the Malaysian and Indonesian governments for a 48-kilometre-long (30 mi) crossing. Included is a suspension span of 2,600 m and a cable-stayed span of 1,200 m, making both longer than any existing in their category.
Storfjord Bridge Storfjorden, Norway 2,300 m (7,500 ft) Plans under consideration Will replace the ferry connecting the municipalities of Sykkylven and Ålesund as well as being part of the "ferry-free E39" project. Unusually, the proposed design will have the roadway split around single column towers.
Edvard Grieg Bridge Halsafjord, Norway about 2,000 m (6,600 ft) Proposed The bridge will replace a ferry, and reduce the driving time between Trondheim and Molde by 34 minutes.
Mao Zedong Bridge Qiongzhou Strait, China about 2,000 m (6,600 ft) Preliminary work A suspension bridge is being considered to cross the 22.5-kilometre-wide (14.0 mi) Qiongzhou Strait.[113] One design consists of four bridges strung together with four main spans of 2,000 m, two main-spans of 1,800 m, five anchorages and 10 towers.[114] If completed this bridge will assume six of the top seven longest spans.
Chacao Channel bridge Chiloé to mainland Chile 1,100 m (3,600 ft) Preliminary work [115] This unusual design had two main spans of 1,055 m and 1,100 m without an anchorage between them. Construction was supposed to begin in 2007 and completed in 2012, but because of cost overruns, the project is now on hold.

Prior longest bridges are located in List of longest arch bridge spans Exceeded by the masonry arch Trezzo sull'Adda Bridge from 1377 to 1416, with main span of 72m.

Old Chain-Bridge at Chaksam.jpg Chakzam Bridge Tibet 137 m (449 ft) 1430 Chain suspension footbridge south of Lhasa, built by Thangtong Gyalpo. Reported by British spies to still be in use in 1878. Later (before 1904) fell into disuse after river course changed, swamping the northern end.[116] Dynamited by Chinese soldiers after the PRC incorporation of Tibet in 1950.[117]

Wheeling Suspension Bridge.jpg Wheeling Suspension Bridge West Virginia, US 308 m (1,010 ft) 1849 The longest deck span from 1849 until 1866, and the oldest vehicular suspension bridge in use in the United States.

Bear Mountain Bridge from below.jpg Bear Mountain Bridge New York, US 497 m (1,631 ft) 1924 It was the longest suspension span but not the longest span of all bridges. The Quebec Bridge completed in 1917, a cantilever bridge with a span of 549 m was longer until surpassed in 1929 by the Ambassador Bridge.

The first suspension bridge to have a concrete deck. The construction methods pioneered in building it would make possible several much larger projects to follow.
