An interesting article in the CNN travel website describes the longest bridges in the world considering various construction types.


For example, the Longest suspension bridge in the world is the 3911m-long Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge in Kobe, Japan. This is particularly interesting because Kobe was hit by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit in 1995 that caused 6 434 deaths, among which 4600 were Kobe city inhabitants.
