It is a gigantic project full of superlatives. A bridge between Sicily and the Italian mainland will span 3.3 kilometers between two almost 400 meter high bridge pillars: four lanes and two hard shoulders, with two high-speed railway tracks in the middle. From 2032, the world’s longest suspension bridge will span the Strait of Messina. Bigger than the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. More than a kilometer longer between the pillars than the current record holder, the Dardanelles Bridge in Turkey.
