The longest bridge in the UK as at 2006, is the Humber Estuary bridge, completed in 1981 at a length of 1,410 metres. At the time of construction, it was the longest bridge in the world, but is now the 4th longest in the world. The Humber Bridge is the longest bridge in the United Kingdom AS TAKEN BY THE LENGTH OF THE MAIN SPAN, and therefore the 4th longest in the world when using that criteria. The longest bridge in it's entirety is the Second Severn Crossing, which has a length of roughly 3.2 miles, over twice as long as the Humber Bridge.
