The final deck section of the Rion–Antirion bridge, linking the Peloponnese peninsula to the Greek mainland across the Gulf of Corinth, was manoeuvred into place on Monday. The bridge, designed by Berdj Mikaelian for client Gefyra SA, will open on 8 August for the Olympic flame to be carried across. The project team includes contractor Vinci Construction, supervision engineer FaberMaunsell and design consultant Buckland & Taylor.
