Confederation Bridge 20th anniversary

Operated by VINCI Highways, a subsidiary of VINCI Concessions, the Confederation Bridge, which connects New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island to Canada, celebrated its 20th anniversary this summer.

  

To celebrate the event, the bridge was closed to traffic on June 16-18, 2017. More than 5,000 people gathered on this technical marvel: with its 13 km, it is the longest bridge in the world to span an ice-covered body of water.

This event combined with the celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary. "The bridge is also a jewel of Canada's infrastructure and, I think, the pride and joy of all Canadians" said Michel Le Chasseur, managing director of Strait Crossing Bridge Limited, the company responsible for operating and maintaining the bridge, and owned by VINCI Highways.

The Confederation Bridge is an iconic work, inaugurated in 1997, that allows Canada to be served by an uninterrupted road network from East to West. The Confederation Bridge is used every year by a million and a half people.
