Messina Straits Bridge

10 March 2009

Italy’s revived Messina Straits bridge is expected to cost € 6,1 billion and have a central span of 3,3 km, making it the longest in the world. Part of a € 17,8 billion public works programme construction is expected to start later this year. When the bridge was last mooted in 2004 a consortium of Denmark’s COWI, Italy’s Impregilo, Condotte, Aci Consorzio Stabile, Cooperativa Muratori & Cementisti (CMC), and Impresa Grassetto, alongside Spain’s Sacyr Vallehermoso, and Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries (IHI) from Japan were awarded the design, build operate, transfer (DBOT) contract, which was then valued at € 3,9 billion.
