The Kvalsund bridge crosses the strait of Kvalsund in Finnmark community Northern Norway. The bridge was opened for traffic in 1977. The main span of 525 meters is the 56th longest in the world but the most northern. Vertical clearance is 26 meters during mean high water. The two reinforced concrete towers are asymmetrical. The norther tower on the Kvaløya island side is 97,5 meters tall and 16 meter taller than the southern tower. The deck is 11 meters wide and carries two road lanes and two pedestrian lanes. The two suspension cables consist of eighteen 72 millimeter thick subcables each. The subcables are bundled in a rectangular bunch and spread apart on their way from the tower saddles to the earth anchorages.
