Patras Transportation: 22 reviews and 23 photos


Since August 2004, a bridge connects Patras, with the mainland. The bridge crosses the Gulf of Corinth between Rio, near Patras, and Antirio, on the opposite shore. The bridge was named after Charilaos Trikoupis, a prime minister who first suggested the idea of linking the Peloponnese with mainland Greece by a bridge in this strait.
The bridge is 2,880 m long and 28 m wide. There are two vehicle lanes per direction, an emergency lane and a pedestrian walkway.
The bridge is widely considered to be an engineering masterpiece. For those interested in its construction, there are fascinating pictures on the following link: http://en.structurae.de/structures/data/index.cfm?ID=s0001110
