The 1915 Çanakkale Bridge in Turkey features in today's Dezeen Agenda newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Agenda newsletter features the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge in Turkey, which has become the world’s longest suspension bridge.

Created by consulting group COWI for contractor DLSY, the structure takes the title of the world’s longest suspension bridge from the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan, which has a 1,992-metre-long span.
