 Longest cable bridge: the Russky Island bridge sets world record (PICS & VIDEO)

MOSCOW, Russia -- Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev opened a 3,622-foot (1,104 meter-long) cable bridge connecting Vladivostok to Russky Island
- which sets the new world record for the Longest cable bridge, according to the World Record Academy:

The section suspended by cables – 1,104 metres – is the longest in the world, beating China's Sutong bridge by 16 metres. (enlarge photo)

  The title of world's longest cable-stayed bridge had previously been held by Sutong Bridge that spans the Yangtze River in China.

  The Guinness world record for the Tallest bridge was set by the 2,460-m (8,070-ft) long Millau Viaduct across the Tarn Valley, France, which is supported by seven concrete piers, the tallest of which measures 244.96 m (804 ft) from the ground to the road deck.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the widest long-span bridge, set by the 503 m (1,650 ft) Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia which is 48.8 m (160 ft) wide.
   "I am certain it will serve a great number of people who live in Vladivostok and on Russky Island, and those who come as tourists. … It is just a beautiful structure, embodying the genius of engineering," the prime minister said at an opening ceremony for the bridge, RIA-Novosti reported.

  A massive construction boom has hit Vladivostok as the city gets ready to host a summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Community (Apec) on Russky Island in September.

   The world's longest cable bridge is currently only operating on a testing basis.

  It reportedly cost about 33.9 billion rubles ($1.1 billion) of federal money to build.

  Russia's premier had avidly promoted modernisation while serving as president in the past four years and sounded a clear note of irony as he complemented constructors and engineers on their work.

 "Unfortunately, we might not know how to build houses," said Medvedev. "But we can certainly build structures like this."
