Grenland BridgeEdit profile
Grenland Bridge (in Norwegian Grenlandsbrua) is Norway's highest cable-stayed bridge with a tower height of 168 meters (551 ft). The bridge, which opened in 1996, is on route E18. It crosses the Frierfjord, a fjord which separates the municipalities of Porsgrunn and Bamble in Telemark county. When built, it replaced Brevik Bridge as the primary route across the fjord. The 608-meter (1,995 ft) long bridge uses cable stayed construction to provide a clearance for vessels up to 50 meters (164 ft) in height. The stay cables are arranged in 21 cable pairs with lengths from 84 to 287 meters (276 to 942 ft). The bridge's span is 305 meters (1,001 ft).
