In 1988 the Finnish Roads Administration organised a design competition for a technically advanced bridge which would adapt well to the lake landscape near the city of Heinola. Heinola is one of the most beautiful cities in Finland, about 130 km north of Helsinki on the route to a lake area where many vacation cottages are located. The winner of the competition, now known as the "Star of Heinola", is a single-pylon, cable-stayed bridge. It is the largest bridge in Finland, with a total length of 924 m. The main span is 165 m and the width of the deck varied from 22 to 30 m.
