The Djupfjord Bridge.

The Djupfjord Bridge (Norwegian: Djupfjordbrua) is a bridge that crosses Djupfjorden in the municipality of Moskenes in Nordland county, Norway. The bridge is 259 metres long. It was opened on 3 June 2003 and replaced an older bridge at the same place. The building of the bridge took 2 years, which was longer than planned, because of problems with the strong current in the fjord, waves and wind. The bridge, access roads and demolition of the old bridge cost approximately 57 million kroner.[1]

The old Djupfjord Bridge was a suspension bridge, and was built in 1959.[2]
