There’s no doubt about it: bridges are some of the most useful pieces of engineering in the world of transport and trekking. They can cut valuable minutes or hours off a journey and are sometimes the only thing that makes a journey possible at all – short of getting wet! However, there are some bridges you just wouldn’t want to cross, no matter HOW much time they would save you on a journey. They’re dangerous and make you wonder just WHO had the courage to build them in the first place. Here they are…
#6 – Storseisundet Bridge, Norway
The Storseisundet Bridge (Storseisundetbrua in Norwegian) is the longest of the eight bridges that make up the Atlantic Highway, which is a road connection from the mainland Romsdal peninsula to the island of Averøya in Møre og Romsdal county, in Norway
Opened in July 1989, this feat of engineering is 260 metres long and with a maximum clearance to the sea of 23 metres.
When the north Atlantic swell rolls in, the sea-spray can fly across the road making the journey across treacherous, especially for high sided vehicles and the Storseisundet Bridge is so dramatically shaped it has featured in numerous TV adverts.
