Abstract: Bridges are the structure’s constructor cross obstacles like valleys or water bodies for the purpose of providing transportation facility across two inaccessible places. This paper is on construction challengers of Rion-Antirion Bridge located over the Gulf of Corinth in Western Greece linking the Rio and Antirio. The purpose of constructing this bridge is to replace an existing ferry system to cross the Gulf of Corinth. The physical challenges in this area made this project unique. The construction challenges are deep strata of weak soil, deep waters, strong winds, strong seismic activities and fault displacement. To overcome all these challenges the engineers came up with unique solutions which make this bridge soo unique.
