Svinesundsbrua - The new Svinesund bridge

The new bridge is higly needed, as the traffic has dramaticly increased between Norway and Sweden.

It span is over 704 meters long, and 91,5 meters tall. The cost has a total of almost 2 mill US dollars. It was constructed over 15 months.

June the 10th a grand opening was held on the new bridge with royals, and over 15,000 Swedes and Norwegians celebrating. The big festivity was just not for the bridge - but to mark Norway's anniversary. June 9th 1905 Norway broke out from the Swedish union.
