The Askøy Bridge

In the 1990’s we participated in the construction of the Askøy Bridge, which spans the fiord Byfjorden in Norway. The Askøy Bridge is a suspension bridge with a main span of 850 metres. The total length of the bridge, which has seven spans, is 1,057 metres and the maximum clearance above the sea is 62 metres.

Experience with suspension bridges

We were responsible for the contract management and design work in connection with the supply and erection of the steel superstructure.

We had considerable experience from similar jobs. This enabled us to use new and unconventional methods to successfully construct this bridge.

Finished ahead of schedule

The completed bridge, which was operated as at toll bridge until 2006, was handed over to the client, Statens Vegvesen, Hordaland in December 1992 – five months ahead of schedule.
