Ten random things: May 31

Ten long bridges:

  1. Penang Bridge, Malaysia (13.5 km)
  2. Rio-Niterói Bridge, Brazil (13.3 km)
  3. General Rafael Urdaneta Bridge, Venezuela (8.7 km)
  4. Confederation Bridge, Canada (12.9 km)
  5. Vasco da Gama Bridge, Portugal (17.7 km)
  6. Donghai Bridge, China (32.5 km)
  7. Kam Sheung Road-Tuen Mun viaduct, Hong Kong (13.4 km)
  8. Third Mainland Bridge, Nigeria (10.5 km)
  9. Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, Louisiana (38.4 km)
  10. Oresund Bridge, Denmark/Sweden (7.8 km)

Long in this context means longer than one kilometer. Today is the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Confederation Causeway.
