Greatest Human Creation in a Lush Spot
Why the Hardanger Bridge is one of greatest human creations? The answer is plenty because features that we will acquire are mostly in the jaw-dropping category. Since there are two tunnels from the different side – there will be two roundabouts that the diameter size is 55 meters. The functionality of this roundabout is to distribute traffic in three different way. The bridge uses the combination material where the 15,000 tons of steel part come from any places and any countries around the world. The total length between the two different points serves 2.4 kilometers for the tunnels only along with 800 meters road and the 900 meters walkway and cycle path. The details of the work contain concrete about 22,400 square meters, 3,800 tons, and the formwork has 50,000 m2.
