Concreting of the four huge immersed piers for the 2.5km long RionAntirion bridge in Greece is now well advanced with the first unit at deck level, 53m above the sea. Work is beginning on the four pylon legs which will support steel tower tops and anchorages for the cable stays.

Onshore, the yard near Antirion village, once used for casting the four 70m diameter circular pier bases, is now being converted for deck unit assembly.

Britain's Cleveland Bridge, which is fabricating the units in Darlington, will also carry out onsite assembly for Gefyra, the Franco-Greek main contractor.

Project supervising engineer is Maunsell Greece.
