Norway prepares longest timber bridge

The representatives of the Norwegian road authority, Nye Veier, and the joint venture BERINOR ANS, associating BESIX and Rizzani de Eccher, signed the contract for the design, permitting and further development of the E6 Moelv-Roterud infrastructure project, in September this year.

The project includes the main bridge over Lake Mjøsa spanning more than one kilometre and an 11-kilometre section of four-lane motorway.

The bridge concept will make it the longest in the world to use structural timber and will set a new benchmark for the use of sustainable materials in major infrastructure projects.

Sustainability aspects, including limited greenhouse gas emissions and quality landscape integration, are amongst the primary objectives of Nye Veier and BERINOR. The bridge crossed an EU Natura 2000 area, and the works are therefore subject to strict environmental requirements.
