NCC to build Norwegian suspension bridge pylons

7 Jun 13 NCC has been commissioned to build sections of Norway’s second-longest suspension bridge.

The SEK739m (£73m) contract involves construction of two connecting bridges and two 170m-tall concrete pylons. The pylons will be slipformed by NCC’s specialist slip-casting company.

The bridge, which is scheduled for completion in 2017, is part of a project to improve the E6 expressway between Narvik and Bjerkvik safer and more accessible. The journey between the two cities will be shortened by 18km.

The bridge will carry a dual carriageway, with a pedestrian and bicycle path.
