How many bridges for motor vehicle transport cross the Suez Canal?
There is only one bridge crossing the Canal but it could be certainly referred to as the "great" one. Its main aim is to link the two largest continents (Eurasia and Africa). It was built with the help of the Japanese government. The Japanese invested more than 13 billion yen in the project.
The bridge was opened in 2001. Its length is about 2.4 mi.
