Even more bridges

Today's bridge is called "Nordhordlandsbroen" and connects Bergen with the northern part of the county. This road is also the main route to the north from Bergen to cities like Ålesund and Trondheim. It was opened in 1994 and replaced the then busiest strech of ferry traffic in Norway. It is very special kind of bridge since it is partly built on pontoons and is partly an ordinary suspension bridge at one end to let sea-going traffic through.

The picture was taken from the top of one of the seven mountains surrounding Bergen, called Lyderhorn. It is not the tallest one, but it commands a magnificent view of the surrounding area - including far into the North Sea. If you want to see more of the pictures I took at the top, please look here.
