Mosel bridge

The Mosel Bridge is a planned highway bridge that traverses the Moselle valley in Germany.

Plans were first proposed for a 1.7km, 10-column, 158m tall bridge in 1968 as a link between the US bases in the region during the Cold War, but the project has been a source of major contention with numerous protests and legal challenges over the years questioning its economic necessity as well as citing the negative ecological impact on the unique microclimate of the Mosel wine region.

Despite heavy opposition, construction started on the project in 2009 but as of April 2012 has come to a standstill.
