The bridge of Plaka is a stone arched bridge, which is located in the village of Plaka in Tzoumerka and is crossed by the river Arachthos. It is the largest single-arched bridge in the Balkans, and its arch extends to 40 meters and a height of 20 meters. It was built in 1866 and has since collapsed three times.
After its last collapse in 2015, and through the cooperation of the Ministries of Culture and Sports, Infrastructure, Finance, the Epirus region, the NTUA and the TEE, the bridge was restored in an exemplary manner. The work was completed in 2019-2020 and the project was awarded the Europa Nostra Award in 2021 in the rehabilitation category.
Our company had the honor to supply pozzolan to this exceptional project. The Bridge has been declared a protected historical monument because until 1913 it was the border line between Greece and the Ottoman Empire.
