The Rio - Antirrio bridge, the largest fully suspended cable-stayed bridge in the world, is inaugurated

 The Rio-Antirrio Bridge, officially the "Charilaos Trikoupis" Bridge, is one of the most emblematic projects in Greece. At the same time, it is the longest multi-span fully suspended cable-stayed bridge worldwide. The total length of the Rio-Antirrio Bridge is 2,833 m., while its cable-stayed part has a length of 2,252 m. The bridge bears the name of the Greek Prime Minister who envisioned uniting the Peloponnese with Western Greece in 1889. The project began in October 1998 and was completed in August 2004.
