Getxo, 2018

The Bizkaia bridge, on its 125th anniversary, a year packed with publicity, educational, art and leisure activities, took a step further along the path begun years before and took charge of organising the world congress. This dealt with the revival of the Transporter Bridge Association, set up in 2013 to safeguard these structures, and the Nicolás Avellaneda delegation signed the founding document for Argentina to be the leader of the joint bid. The French and German representatives undertook to sign it in the coming months.

The congress also saw the launch of the online platform, the first shared space to publicise and promote the eight bridges together: a forum intended to be lively and open to the public, a show window for individual initiatives and a launching pad for joint actions, committed to active participation by those in charge of the bridges involved.
