Did anybody mention that length is more important than span? You are assuming things and then getting angry, which means that you are jealous...nobody is jealous, any nation can put up posts and sticks to make as long a bridge as they want, there is a quite boring bridge in Louisiana that is simply posts and beams that held the "bridge" record for decades. The real engineering achievement has always been the span. Japan has the longest span ever, and that remains a MUCH BIGGER achievement than this viaduct or bridge. If Italy tops it, then the greatest bridge ever will go to them. Sorry, nice bridge, but not the "longest"
