Rion-Antirion cable-stayed bridge

The Rion-Antirion Bridge in Greece is the product of a seven-year construction project and will result in the world's longest cable-stayed bridge. With a suspended deck of 2,252m, the Rion-Antirion Bridge features four pylons (where there are usually two) and has a reference span of 560m. Located in the western end of the Gulf of Corinth in Greece, the Rion-Antirion Bridge will link the Peloponnese (southern Greece) to the Greek mainland. The Bridge also unites two major roads: the intersection of the Patras-Athens-Thessaloniki motorway (which forms part of the European motorway) and the western axis of the Kalamata-Patras-Igoumenitsa road.
