Storseisundet – The Most Fearsome Bridge Ever

In Norway, July 7, 1989 has been opened Atlantic road, consisting of several bridges, but one bridge is built a bit unusual, it Storseisundet Bridge. Bridge is the longest bridge of 8 “Atlantic Road”, its length is 260 meters. Bridge deviates into the sea at 23 meters. It was planned that he would be built horizontally, but for unknown reasons, has changed the original project. And now it looks like a roller coaster. Those who have not seen the bridge before, may be frightened, approaching close to him. After a certain angle, it seems that the bridge is not completed and looks like a ski jump, but do not be afraid, because the bridge is completely finished, but the architect who built this bridge explicitly humorous or loves to ride a roller coaster.

We did not know under what influence he has to this point been 🙂 it will remain a secret for us. Residents of crazy twists bridge nicknamed him “drunk the bridge.” But fortunately, this bridge is not so drunk to fall from every breath of wind, it is strong enough, because it has to withstand strong winds and storms raging here often enough. flickr/PROMartin Ystenes

Perhaps the unusual architecture of the bridge has been created in order to allow the passage of vessels beneath it, or to emphasize the curves and lines of the Norwegian mountains. This magnificent reconcile nature with modern architectural building is a picturesque place attracts many tourists and photographers from around the world.
