"Atlanterhavsveien --- The Atlantic Road" Vevang by gubbi1

Vevang Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

It has been on the web that I came across the Atlantic Road while looking for tourist roads for my road trip around the Southern part of Norway. I was immediately fascinated and remembered my trip to the Lofoten on which I also crossed waters by interesting bridges. The Atlantic Road connects Vevang with Kårvåg by 8 bridges, which partly are really spectacular.

Vevangstraum-Bridge: Length 119 m, height 10 m
Hulvågen-Bridge: Three bridges together 239 m length, height 4 m
Storseisund-Bridge: Length 260 m, height 23 m
Geitøysund-Bridge: Length 52 m, height 6 m
Store-Lauvøysund-Brücke: Length 52 m, height 3 m
Lille-Lauvøysund-Bridge: Length 115 m, height 7 m

Plans for a connection between the bridge were thought about already in 1909. At that time a train track was the idea, which lasted until 1935 when it was taken aside. In the 70ties the wish for a communication came up again and in 1983 finally the construction of a car bridge started.
