The Rombak Bridge (Norwegian: Rombaksbrua) is a suspension bridge that crosses the Rombaken fjord near the town of Narvik in Nordland county, Norway. The 765-metre (2,510 ft) long bridge was opened in 1964. The main span is 325 metres (1,066 ft) and the maximum clearance to the sea is 41 metres (135 ft).[1]

The bridge has a weight limit of 90 metric tons (89 long tons; 99 short tons). That, along with the danger of avalanches on the road near the bridge, has led to plans for a new bridge, the Hålogaland Bridge. It will be a long suspension bridge that goes straight across the fjord from Narvik to Øyjord. The new bridge will save some driving distance and time as well.
