The Rion – Antirion Bridge is the longest multi-span cable stayed bridge of the World with its 2,252 meters’ deck. Its foundations lay on a seabed that reaches 65 meters of depth. This is a world record for a bridge as well as their diameter of 90 meters making of them the world’s largest bridge foundations. Although according to the constructors, the best record of this great Bridge, is that it was built “without any serious accident, without a single drop of blood”.

That is longer than the A9 viaducts between Montreux and Villeneuve. Those viaducts are 2200 m long approximately.

Yeah it seems to be longer. I just found out that the Viaduct d'Yverdon (A5) is actually the longest bridge in Switzerland (3155m) but it's not nearly as spectacular:

I like this one, in the "Rodovia dos Imigrantes", between Sao Paulo and Santos, Brazil. Unfortunately, I don't know the extension.

The longest bridge in the United States is the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway outside of New Orleans. The bridge spans Lake Pontchartrain in Lousiana - that bridge is 23.8 miles (38.3 km) long, making it currently the largest completed bridge in the world.

*snorts* You can tell which is "Govt" opinion and which is resident opinion. The Federal Govt FINALLY admitted a few years ago, that PEI residents had actually voted against the bridge, but ONLY after the bridge had been built. Just more evidence that our Govt is NOT democratic, but lies along the line of a Communist wannabe dictatorship...

Yes:

The town's name is derived from the Slavic (more precisely Bulgarian) černa voda (черна вода in Cyrillic), meaning "black water".

Zwolle also has a Cernavodă by the way.
