The bridge is supported by four pillars, it has a length of 2280 meters, and together with its accesses reaches around 2880 meters. The bridge was developed and completed despite adverse environmental conditions, while the maximum depth of the foundation reaches 65 meters under the sea level. It is a cable-stayed bridge, the strength of which is impressive.
