9 April 2018 - Events - Greece
The Rion-Antirion bridge operated by VINCI Highways, subsidiary of VINCI Concessions, was the setting of a unique artistic performance on 25 March, Greek Independence Day. Dancer Katerina Soldatou put on a show of aerial choreography that perfectly showcased the bridge’s technical features, performing spectacular figures over 50 metres above sea level.
Commissioned in 2004, the Rion-Antirion bridge is considered throughout the world to be a masterpiece of technology and engineering. It is used each day by a great number of vehicles seeking to cross the Gulf of Corinth. “By choosing the Rion-Antirion bridge, we wanted to symbolise the connection uniting the Greek people. The bridge is a powerful symbol on our Independence Day,” said the dancer.
Committed partner of the Greek authorities, VINCI Highways and its partners delivered two other large-scale motorway projects in 2017, Olympia Odos and Aegean Motorway, operated until 2038.
