The facts

Completed in 1995, the Le Pont de Normandie is a cable-stayed bridge that connects Honfleur and Le Havre, France. The main span is 856 meters long and raises almost 58 meters above the water level.

Past

The decision to built a cable-stayed bridge was inspired by the fact that this was the world's longest cable-stayed bridge! The Le Pont de Normandie had beaten the record held by the Skarnsundet bridge and the Quingzhou Minjang bridge built in china in 1996.

Present

However the world's record today is held by the Tartara bridge in Hiroshima, Japan which was completed in 1998.

Pros and Cons

    I would love to walk under this bridge. Also Le Havre has a special interest to me. I was born in the American sister city to Le Havre. Havre de Grace, Maryland.
