Svinesund Bridge – Norway & Sweden
Arching 302 ft. (92 m) above the Iddefjord between Halden, Norway and Strömstad, Sweden, the Svinesund bridge opened to traffic on June 13, 2005. A joint venture of the Swedish and Norwegian road authorities, it carries European Route E6, the major traffic artery linking Oslo and other Norwegian locations with Gothenburg, Malmö, Copenhagen and cities throughout Europe. The structure accommodates two lanes of vehicles in each direction, and is one of the world’s largest single-arch bridges. The arch is hollow, and employs heating coils to prevent the buildup of snow and ice. It also contains interior maintenance pathways to simplify access for the bridge’s upkeep.
