Hardanger Bridge


Hardanger Bridge

Hardanger Bridge is a planned bridge which will cross the Hardangerfjord in southwestern Norway. It will replace today's ferry connection.

The bridge will be about 1380 metres long, with a main span of 1310 meters. It will be a suspension bridge, one of the longest spans in the world (no 7 in today's list, and no 1 in Norway).

The small difference between length and span is because the fjord quickly becomes very deep, and the towers must stand near the shore. Also there are steep mountain walls. The maximum water depth near the bridge is about 500 m, and the mountains surrounding the fjord are about 1200 m high.

The cost will be 1,8 billion Norwegian kroner, and construction start is planned for 2009, and opening 2013.

The engineering part of the project will be done by Statens Vegvesen, Veidirektoratet.
