This unique bridge has made news in last couple of years and it is counted among one of the major landmarks of the city. It is known as the Atlantic Road (Atlanterhavsveien) and also known as Stroseisundet. As per the Daily Mail reports in 2011, they gave it a new name- ‘The Road to Nowhere’ and this actually seems very apt going by the structure of the road.
If we look carefully at the road, it seems that any vehicle which reaches the far ends of the road will sink into the water below. This sounds scary right?
Anybody who is driving along this spectacular road for the first time will be forced into thinking ‘Is there any end to it?’
This road is crucial as it is part of the longest connection between Norway’s Mainland and the Island of Averoy which consists of 8 bridges.
This is a cantilever bridge and it is 260 meters long. It was opened in 1989 and operational as toll road until 1999.
Due to its innovative design and amazing structure, it won the coveted title of ‘Norwegian Construction of the Century’.
It is also considered as second most popular road among tourist after Trollstigen
