Calatrava pedestrian bridge
Athens

Calatrava pedestrian bridge is 94 m. long and is raised by 6 meters on top of Messogion Avenue. Its basic characteristics are as follows:


• A curve-shaped metal pillar, 50m high, at the eastern side of Messogion Avenue, where the entrance/exit of KATEHAKI Station is located.

• An overhead "passage way", 94m total long and 4-6m. wide. The access is possible through staircases and escalators as well as through lifts.

• Metal “cords-cables” which start from the metal pillar and hold the "passage way".

Calatrava pedestrian bridge has been constructed over Messogion Avenue in view of providing optimum operation and access to KATEHAKI Metro Station. Its construction contributes significantly to the upgrading in terms of aesthetics of the city, since such an internationally recognised work will grace the main entrance to the city of Athens from Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport.
