Don’t forget ‘Ponte Conde de Linhares’ bridge in Goa. It is not as magnificent as the bridges listed above but then it was built in 1633 (first major bridge of India) by then portugal viceroy of India. It is an extension of a cause way with same name and is 3.2 km in total so it is sometimes considered as longest bridge in the word at that time (1633).

The photo of the so called “Brahmaputra Bridge” is wrong there is no bridge with that name. There are three bridges upon the Brahmaputra. You may be talking about Kolia Bhumura Bridge near Kaziranga. Please update with correct pics. 🙂

The Vidyasagar bridge is the 62nd longest cable-stayed bridge in Asia.

That hardly makes it “one of the longest in Asia”.
