Day 2 Thursday 27th May
The keynote will outline the challenges encountered and the innovations that were developed during the search for the perfect way to cross the 5km-wide Bjørnafjord. A number of crossing concepts were considered - including a floating suspension bridge and a submerged floating tunnel – but these were discarded for this location in favour of the final proposal, a floating cable-stayed bridge.
