Cross the world’s longest bridge

If you want to cross the world’s longest bridge, you’ll have to go to China and do it by train.

At 164.8-kilometres in length, the Kunshan Grand Bridge in Jiangsu province beats out it’s closest rival in Taiwan by a full seven kilometres.

The bridge is actually a viaduct on the Beijing–Shanghai High-Speed Railway that connects the cities of Shanghai and Nanjing.

Completed in 2010 and opened in 2011, the bridge took four years to build and cost an eye-popping $8.5 billion.
