Uddevalla Bridge

Bridges, they should not only do their job and connect people. They should also be aesthetic and form a landmark. I believe that Uddevallabron over the fjord Byfjorden, fulfils both criteria. Thinking I wanted to take some pictures every time I pass over it but never got around to it until today. Not the best conditions when I arrived with harsh daylight and clear sky but good things comes to those who wait.

The bridge was completed in May 2000 after almost three years of construction. With its 1712 meters it’s the second longest motorway bridge in Sweden. At its completion it shortened the travel distance between Göteborg and Oslo by 12,8 kilometres. The design is a cable-stayed bridge and the main span is 414 meters. The sail free clearance is 51 meters and the pylons are 149 meters high.

Be a bridge over troubled waters, ha de Gött!
