China is an expansive country and has invested considerably to build up its transportation infrastructure over the past few years. These long bridges serve to "bridge" the distance between distant cities and town and bring great economic benefits in terms of domestic trade, logistics and travel.

This list is last updated in 23 October 2018, when the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge, the longest sea bridge linking Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai (55 km) is officially opened.
