The longest bridge in the world will be built in Italy, here are the two big cities that will connect
Written by SOT.COM.AL 20 Mars 2023
The Meloni government passed a decree, on the basis of which it was decided to build a bridge that would connect Calabria with the island of Sicily.
The Messina Strait Bridge is a project that has been discussed many times in the past, causing party and intra-governmental confrontations.
If what has just been approved this time can really be completed, work will begin in July 2024 and is expected to be completed within five years. This cable-stayed bridge will be 3.3 kilometers long (for the movement of cars and trains) and, as noted, "will be the longest in the world". The main objective is to replace the current ferry connection and favor the economic development of Southern Italy. The relevant decree of the government of Rome foresees that a special public company (Società Stretto di Messina) will undertake the coordination of the necessary actions for the construction of the bridge. The total cost is calculated at 7 billion euros, which will be fully covered by the Italian state.
"We will make this great project a reality, and we will leave an impression on the whole world", the ministry that will deal with the project underlined in a press release.
The Italian newspaper La Repubblica, however, writes that in the past over 300 million euros have been spent on studies and the establishment of special companies with this specific objective, without delivering a single meter of the cable-stayed bridge to the citizens. At the same time, according to many experts, it should be taken seriously that it is a seismic zone and that in bad weather conditions, especially with strong wind, access to the "Messina Strait Bridge" could not be possible.
Finally, to be able to limit its length to 3.3 kilometers, an area must necessarily be chosen which is quite far from the cities of Rigio in Calabria and Messina in Sicily, with a "risk" to continue anyway operation of the current connection, via ferries.
