The Bridge

The world’s longest cable-stayed bridge, with a 1,104m long central span, was opened in 2012 in time for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference hosted by Russia on Russky Island.

Two A-shaped towers or pylons reach a height of 321m and hold 168 cable stays, the longest of which is 580m. All bridge elements are designed to withstand the huge temperature range of the Vladivostok area, of between -40 and +40°C.
