rio antirio bridge

Layers of rocky soil are to be found metres below the subsoil. In a second international tender was issued. Furthermore, the reduction of the number of ferries has significantly decreased the former heavy pollution of the marine environment. Project Overview Figure 1: It is worth making a stop to climb the stairs and take in the view and then visit the museum inside. Finally, being one of the first three projects in Greece to be realised through this new method of project delivery, it opened the way for the adoption of PPP and contributed to related capabilities building in the public sector. Rion-Antirion Bridge is a technology and engineering masterpiece that contributes to economic development on both sides of the Strait of Corinth:

The central government had a direct involvement. The pier footings were not buried into the seabed, but rather rest on a bed of gravel meticulously leveled to an even surface a difficult endeavor at this depth. The first stone of the bridge was placed in by Ajtirio Minister Costas Simitis. In the bridge was featured in an episode of Megastructures on the National Geographic Channel.

Its five-span four-pylon cable-stayed portion 2,m makes it the world’s second longest cable-stayed deck the longest being the Millau Viaduct in southern France at 2,m. This training program helped ensure a zero-accident project and provided Greek employees with an brldge professional qualification. Nearby Hotels See all nearby hotels. These include visual inspections and materials monitoring through tests destructive or non-destructive performed brige the various materials from which the structural elements of the bridge are made.


We were lucky enough to have this stunning structure as our scenic view from our hotel bridgs day. The bridge, a highly technically complex project, as well as expensive, was implemented through a Concession Agreement, which at the time was a considerable challenge.

Risk allocation is described in Figure 3. Project Overview Figure 1: It is not anchored to the piers but is instead suspended from the cable stays. Until the performance of the project was above expectations.

Innovative design and off-shore construction methods had to be implemented to address an adverse construction environment including the length of the strait approximately 2,m wide and deep water up to 65 mcombined with deep soil strata of weak alluviums, the possibility of strong seismic activity, tectonic movements 30 mm a year and adverse high wind actions. The thickest cable is formed of seventy 15mm strands.

In addition, we had to reinforce the subsoil to a depth of 20 metres to ensure that the structures would withstand a potential 2-metre shift in the event of an earthquake. Hello, can you please tell me where did you take the ferry?

Four damping devices connect the deck to the top of each pier and limit aantirio pendulum movement of the deck during an earthquake.

According to the study, the impacts during construction were noise, air pollution, the location of the worksite and the impacts due to its operation and the potential impact upon marine life of the antifouling product used on the part of the structures permanently under sea level.


The Rio—Antirrio Bridge Greek: One specific element of the system is the ability to detect and specifically treat earthquake events. The Rio-Antirio Bridge is a challenging structure both in terms of construction and maintenance. The main technical challenge of the project was the marine subsoil in the area, which is not favourable for large-scale construction.

Rion-Antirion Bridge

It is situated on major motorway axes in the vicinity of the Port of Patras, which connects Greece to Italy and from there to the rest of Europe. Drivers can travel along these five road networks using the electronic toll lanes with a single transponder.

However, as the latter is also supported by bearings at the pylons apart from cable stays, the Rio—Antirrio Bridge deck might be considered the longest cable-stayed “suspended” deck. Natirio, the reduction of the number of ferries has significantly decreased the former heavy pollution of the marine environment.

Rio-Antirio or Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge

We stopped at the village of Antirrio side and had lunch at a seaside tavern, overlooking the bridge and people swimming in the crystal brridge waters and enjoying the They are made of parallel galvanized strands. It is one of the longest mulit-span cable-stayed bridges in the world. The day was clear and sunny but extremely windy, and the crossong was “interesting”.

Is this attraction a “must-see” location?
