List of longest suspension bridge spans

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 BridgeSpain to MoroccoVery longProposedSome 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.
HordfastBjørnafjorden, Norway5,000 m (16,000 ft)PlannedThe preferred solution to connect Bergen and Haugesund along E39 highway. This is probably the most difficult of the planned E39 crossings. A 5 km long floating bridge over the 550 m (1,800 ft) deep fjord is planned. The bridge must have a maximum clearance above water of 55 m like the Hardanger Bridge. Plans do not include construction start before 2030. Like some of the other E39 new technology needs to be developed inspired by offshore technology, and cost calculations are unreliable.
Sulafjord BridgeSulafjorden, Norway4,000 m (13,000 ft)PlannedWill replace the ferry connecting Hareid and Sula, as well as being part of the national "Ferry-free E39" project. This bridge is a challenging and costly project, crossing wide and deep 450 m (1,480 ft) fjord . Sulafjorden is a part of Storfjorden, and the Sulafjord Bridge is decided instead of the Storfjord Bridge. Plans do not include construction start before 2030.
SognebruaSognefjorden, Norway3,700 m (12,100 ft)PlannedOne 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 do not include construction start before 2030.
Strait of Messina BridgeSicily to mainland Italy3,300 m (10,800 ft)CancelledThe project was cancelled on 11 October 2006 by the Romano Prodi-led government amid controversy concerning the bridge's cost.[126] 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 BridgeJava to Sumatra, Indonesiaabout 3,000 m (9,800 ft)CancelledThis 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.[127]
Malacca Strait BridgePeninsular Malaysia, Malaysia to Sumatra, Indonesia2,600 m (8,500 ft)Preliminary workJoint 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.
Edvard Grieg BridgeHalsafjord, Norwayabout 2,000 m (6,600 ft)ProposedThe bridge will replace a ferry, and reduce the driving time between Trondheim and Molde by 34 minutes.
Mao Zedong BridgeQiongzhou Strait, Chinaabout 2,000 m (6,600 ft)Preliminary workA suspension bridge is being considered to cross the 22.5-kilometre-wide (14.0 mi) Qiongzhou Strait.[128] 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.[129] If completed this bridge will assume six of the top seven longest spans.
Julsund BridgeJulsundet, Norway1,625 m (5,331 ft)PlannedThe bridge will replace a ferry, located west of Molde. Together with 16 km undersea tunnel under Romsdalsfjorden, is a part of the "ferry-free E39" project. Compared with other E39 projects, these are more known sizes and therefore more feasible. Plans say construction start will be between 2025-2030.

Notes
Maya Bridge at YaxchilanMexico62 m (203 ft)600–1430Hemp-rope simple suspension footbridge. Existence unproven. No longer standing.

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.

Chakzam BridgeTibet137 m (449 ft)1430–1820Chain 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.[130] Dynamited by Chinese soldiers after the PRC incorporation of Tibet in 1950.[131]
Union BridgeScotland - England, UK137 m (449 ft)1820–1826The oldest in the world still in use today.
Menai Suspension BridgeWales, UK176 m (577 ft)1826–1834
Great Suspension BridgeFribourg, Switzerland271 m (889 ft)1834–1849The bridge was replaced by the Zähringen Bridge in the 1920s.
Wheeling Suspension BridgeWest Virginia, US308 m (1,010 ft)1849–1866The longest deck span from 1849 until 1866, and the oldest vehicular suspension bridge in use in the United States.
Queenston-Lewiston BridgeUS and Canada317 m (1,040 ft)1851–1866The longest cable span from 1851 until it was destroyed by wind in 1864. However, the road deck span was only 258 meters long.
John A. Roebling Suspension BridgeKentucky - Ohio, US322 m (1,056 ft)1866–1869
Niagara Clifton BridgeUS and Canada384 m (1,260 ft)1869–1883Replaced in 1899.
Brooklyn BridgeNew York City, US486 m (1,594 ft)1883–1903
Williamsburg BridgeNew York City, US488 m (1,601 ft)1903–1926It was the longest suspension span but not the longest span of all bridges. The Forth Railway Bridge, completed in 1890, a cantilever bridge with two spans of 521 m was longer until surpassed by the Quebec Bridge in 1917.
Bear Mountain BridgeNew York, US497 m (1,631 ft)1924–1926It 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.

Benjamin Franklin BridgePennsylvania - New Jersey, US533 m (1,749 ft)1926–1929It was the longest suspension span but not the longest span of all bridges.
Ambassador BridgeUS and Canada564 m (1,850 ft)1929–1931Since this bridge was built, the record for longest bridge span has only been held by suspension bridges.
George Washington BridgeNew York - New Jersey, US1,067 m (3,501 ft)1931–1937The first span longer than 1 km.
Golden Gate BridgeCalifornia, US1,280 m (4,200 ft)1937–1964Also the longest bridge span in the world from 1937 to 1964
Verrazzano-Narrows BridgeNew York City, US1,298 m (4,259 ft)1964–1981Also the longest bridge span in the world from 1964 to 1981
Humber BridgeYorkshire, United Kingdom1,410 m (4,630 ft)1981–1998Also the longest bridge span in the world from 1981 to 1998
Akashi-Kaikyo BridgeJapan1,991 m (6,532 ft)1998–PresentThe longest bridge span in the world since 1998
