Third longest suspension bridge is to be built in Chile


The world's third longest suspension bridge is to be built in Chile by France's Vinci Construction Grands Projets. The 2,634m structure, baptised the Bicentenary Bridge, will span the Chacao Strait to link the island of Chiloé with the mainland. Vinci leads a consortium which will design, finance, construct, maintain and operate the $521M bridge with a 65 month construction phase.

Challenges include seismic activity in the region.
