The Messina Bridge, which distance will measure 3.3kilometers will be the longest bridge of its type in this world. This is one of the major projects opted for and handled by Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi.

The plan was originaly brought by him during his 2002-2206 government, but the plan was dropped when the next government came to power.

It is a huge project which will cost about 17.8 billion-euro which wil gives job opportunities to many people in Calabria and Sicily and also enriches the two regions economies.

This massive project was agreed by all major cabinets of the current government and various other government departments and will be a major European icon once built.
