Drammen Bridge, Drammen, Norway

August 7th, 2006 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places

Drammen Bridge (Drammensbrua) is a motorway box girder bridge that crosses Drammenselva river in the town of Drammen in Norway. It is the longest bridge in Norway, 1892 metres long. The bridge has 41 spans; the longest span is 60 metres. The maximum clearance to the water is 11 metres.

Drammen Bridge was opened in 1975. Now the congestion on the bridge has become a problem, because the bridge only has two lanes. So a new bridge is being built, parallel to the old one. The new bridge will be opened in December 2006.

The new bridge will have round, slim pillars. There has been some controversy because the wide, rectangular pillars under the old bridge will be replaced with slim pillars similar to the ones those under the new bridge, and that will be very expensive.
