A Bridge Too Far

Contrary to the other Olympic construction projects that are behind schedule in Greece, the Rion-Antirion suspension bridge will be officially opened on August 12.

This is one day before the opening ceremony of the Olympics 2004, being held in Athens; and significantly ahead of the original scheduled opening ceremony for the bridge, which had been set for November 2004.

The Olympic flame will be carried across the bridge on the 8th of August by the Greek football team, winners of Euro 2004.

The bridge is almost 1.4 miles long, and is one of the longest of its kind in the world.
