A PHOTO A DAY HELPS …… Day 115

Norway has impressive civil engineers who have built extraordinary bridges and tunnels which link even small communities living on isolated islands or remote mountains cut off by fjords, rivers and the sea. One such example are the series of bridges from one island to another thereby making the furthest island of Runde accessible even in the worst weather conditions.

Two of the bridges on the way to the island of Runde.

 

The magnificent twelve span, 1km long Helgeland suspension bridge at Sandnessjøen was opened in 1991.

 

 

ADDENDUM TO YESTERDAY’S POST ABOUT AQUEDUCTS:

To see a video of one of our holidays on a canal boat on the Llangollen Canal in north Wales, click here. You will not only see more bridges, including a lifting road bridge, but also the spectacular PONTCYSYLLTE AQUEDUCT. You will also see how locks work to enable the canal to go up and down hills.
