I used the Donghai Bridge (Eastern China Sea Bridge) quite a few times when I was living in Shanghai. The picture was taken on one of the trips of mine. Donghai Bridge is 32.5km long and is said to be the third longest bridge of China. The second place now belongs to the 36km long Hangzhou Bay Bridge which I also used before but didn't take picture.

The longest bridge in China is now the Qingdao Jiaozhou Bay Bridge, 36.48km (26.75km over sea).

Finland

There are no extreme bridges in Finland. The longest one is the Raippaluoto bridge. It is a cable-stayed bridge, total length 1065 metres, main span 250 metres, and the vertical clearance 26 metres. The height of the pylons is 82 from the sea level. The brigde was opened in August 1997, and it replaced a ferry connection.

Exactly the length of the longest viaduct in Slovenia (Črni Kal on A1). The longest bridge is 833 m though (over Mura on A5):

Russia's longest bridge is in Ulyanovsk - over the Volga river, 13 km long.


The longest single span is in Vladivostok - Russky bridge, 1104 m

True. Although even without counting elevated parts of a highway it's still the longest.

While not nearly the longest in Canada, it is quite possibly the most interesting. The brand new Deh Cho bridge in the Northwest Territories. Its only 1.1km long, but the bridge is located way up in the Canadian north, with no major towns or cities for hundreds of kilometers. (it serves as the main connecting road for Yellowknife, a remote canadian city 200km away) The bridge crosses the MacKenzie River, one of the longest and largest rivers in the world. It replaced a ferry service and Ice road, which had faced issues to the fact that for several months a year there were no ways to cross the river while the river froze enough for vehicles to cross it, but when a ferry could no longer serve the route either.

it's toll free for cars, but trucks pay up to $ 290 to cross it.

Why? That's crazy expensive for trucks! How much longer is the shortest possible alternate route?

If the main destination is one city, it may be convenient for goods to be delivered by plane, instead of using the bridge. It's going to be empty

There is no alternate route. The AADT is only around 250 vehicles per day.

It depends by the kind of good. If they are relatively expensive (i.e. high value\volume ratio), 290$ for a full truck won't increase too much the final price. For bulky but cheap stuff (low value\volume ratio) it will be quite a rip-off.
Shipping anything by plane is very costly in terms of fuel, so I'm not sure if it's convenient.

I just realize that that "city" is just a village in the middle of absolutely nothing. With only 250 vehicles per day (and light traffic driving freely), the guy at the toll booth won't have anything to do most of the day.

The Yellowknife Highway runs across it. It is the only access to the city of Yellowknife (pop. 19,000), the capital of the Northwest Territories. It's not a metropolis, but not a village either.

Oh right, also here we're on the 200€-400€ range for trucks. I though they were much lower (like max twice the cars' toll).
Anyway, I think that taxing too much the tranportation system is always a bad idea, since it will increase living costs as whole.
If you tax tobacco, alchool or gambling, prices of other goods and services will stay the same; if you increase fuel, tolls, train transport,... obviously they don't.

The longest bridge in Bosnia- H. runs over the river Sava near the town of Orasje. It is 792 m long.

Two shots from Poland

The Rędziński Bridge (Polish: Most Rędziński) is a cable-stayed bridge spanning the Oder river in Wrocław, Poland. As a section of the A8 motorway bypassing the center of Wroclaw, the bridge links both sections of the route across the Oder, providing connections to the A4 motorway to the south, and to the future sections of the S5 and S8 expressways to the northeast. With its pylon reaching a height of 122 m (400 ft) and having a total length of 1.7 km (1.1 mi), the Rędziński Bridge is the tallest and longest bridge in Poland.

1) From the air

2) Road view

3) Construction testing


...and second bridge is maby shorter but quite inetersting i think

Bridge over the Vistula in Toruń. National road 91. 540m length but full lenght with all viaduct connections is 4100m.



greetings from Krakow
Walter
