9. Wuhan Metro Bridge, China

The 108-meter-long steel box foundation bridge is one of the largest steel box bridges in China. The bridge was built by Hyundai Engineering and Construction for $ 3.6 billion. Akashi Kaikyo is four times as tall as the Brooklyn Bridge in Japan.


It stretches 98 miles from Banguashan to Changhua, Zuoying, and Kaohsiung. The bridge does not cross water but is the highest point of the national road. At 3.8 miles [3.8 km], it is the longest of 13 bridges, and no land can be seen on either side.

When completed in 2008, this major bridge was named the longest bridge in the world but was surpassed by several other bridges in 2010 as part of the Beijing-Shanghai Railway Project. Construction of the Beijing Grand Bridge in China was also completed in 2010, paving the way for its opening in 2011.
