The Norway Sky Bridge

The name of the bridge changed from “Hardanger Brigdge” to ” Norway Sky Bridge”, after seeing this photo where the construction crew walked on the walkway on the bridge suspension cables.  The rest of the bridge is shrouded in cloud, giving the appearance that the suspension cable walkway was the actual bridge.

The main span of the Bridge is 1,310 meters (4297.9 ft) – approximately 20 m longer than the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco. This makes the bridge the longest in Norway and 9th longest in the world.

The towers of the bridge must stand on shore due to the depth of the fjord.  The maximum water depth near the bridge is about 500 m (1,600 ft), and the mountains surrounding the fjord are about 1,200 m (3,900 ft) high.
