Can you know that in Latvia will be most expensive bridge in world? Dont you? Than I explain. In our capital city Riga there are building "Dienvidu tilts"(South bridge), which are shortest than one km, and it goes before river Daugava. And it coasts up than 250 millions lats(more than 300 millions euro). Think that this is small price? Than look at this proportionality. Chineses built about 46 or 36, i cant remember, km long bridge over sea, it name i cant call, but it coasts up than some miliards. So, if we make math-300*46=big money, so, South bridge is the most expensive bridge in world!

WTF. :nuts:

It's hard to figure out what you are trying to say, but it looks like you compare your bridge with one bridge in China and because yours is more expensive, it makes it automatically the most expensive in the world? :lol:

That's great, you're boasting the fact that in Latvia is building a bridge shorter than 1 km and costs 300m Euros?

I would think Latvia, which is hardly the richest country in the world, and has a tiny population, could do a lot more with 300m Euros.

This whole Riga bypass will cost over one billion euros, IIRC. Being without this bypass must be a pain in the ass considering they decided to build it so soon. You can build a lot of motorways for this amount of money, like a motorway to the Lithuanian border, which should be a priority IMO.

maybe 300 milions are not big money, but look at bridge lenght. those bridges in dk, swe, jap are much longer than this, look at price proportionality.

^ in western europe 300million euros for a 1km bridge isnt that unusual, dare i say cheap!

In London they have been looking at a new crossing in the deprived east of the city over the Thames (not a large river by European standards at all) and that is predicted to cost in excess of £500million (750-800 million euros) - and thats a standard looking concrete bridge.

The Millau Bridge in France should be a model for other designers to follow, believe it or not, that bridge was done for 394 million Euro!

No, not even close. The Millau Viaduct was actually quite cheap to build. The most expensive bridge I heard of, but maybe there are more expensive ones, is the Rion-Antirion one in Greece. Believe me it was a lot more than the Millau Viaduct to build.

Ok, here's this such called "The Southern Bridge", which is presently the biggest construction project in Latvia. Construction started in 2004 and it will finish in 2012.

The project envisages the building of the bridge and its trestles over Krasta Street and Maskavas Street before the summer of 2008. It is important to note that that trestle will be the first three-level transport structure in Latvia.
It is planned to conduct the reconstruction of the Slavu railway overpass and establish a three-level trestle in the Slavu rotation circle before 2010.
It is planned to build a motor road from Vienibas gatve to Bauskas Street, with two-level crossroads with Ziepniekkalna Street and Bauskas Street before 2012.
