Rion Antirion finds funds

Financing for Greece's 3km long Rion Antirion Bridge, which spans the western end of the Gulf of Corinth, linking the Peloponnese to the Greek mainland, was finalised at the start of the year. The ECU800M project is the first major private finance scheme in Greece.

The concession for design and construction of the bridge was already awarded to the Gefyra consortium, led by Groupe GTM and including six Greek contractors.

Three 560m long main spans and two 305m long side spans of the cable stayed structure will carry a new road across the deep waters of the Gulf of Corinth in an area prone to large earthquakes.
