The Normandy bridge

 

 

A showcase for French technology

Its total length is 2,114.25m - the distance between the Place de l’Etoile and the Place de la Concord in Paris

Opting for a cable-stayed bridge, which was the best solution for the conditions in the Seine estuary, required many technological innovations. It also meant that some unexpected obstacles had to be overcome: for example, it took a whole year just to construct the foundations of the northern tower!
