The High Coast Bridge (in Swedish Högakustenbron) is a suspension bridge crossing the mouth of the Ångermanälven river near Veda, on the border between the Härnösand and Kramfors municipalities in the province of Ångermanland in northern Sweden. The area is often referred to as The High Coast, hence its name. The bridge replaces Sandöbron, the old bridge across the river, in a new extension of the European route E4 (E4). It is the second longest suspension bridge in Scandinavia (after Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark), the third longest in Europe, and the eleventh longest of the world.

The total length is 1,867 metres (6,125 ft), the span is 1,210 metres (3,970 ft), and the column pillars are 180 metres (591 ft) tall. The max height for ships is 40 metres (131 ft). The bridge was constructed between 1993 and 1997 and was officially opened on December 1, 1997.

bergfjord Virkelig bra bilder! Jeg liker også å fotografere broer. :)
# 2 kunne vært perfekt hvis du hadde stått midt i veien og tatt bildet.
Men jeg vet hvor vanskelig det kan være.. og det var mycket bra uansett! :)
