The new Svinesund Bridge is an arch motorway bridge on the border separating Norway and Sweden. The arch is a single, centrally located concrete structure with a span of 247.3 m, which is believed to be the longest span for a single free-standing concrete arch in the world. The bridge decks consist of two steel orthotropic boxes, one on each side of the arch and connected by cross beams. The total length of the bridge is 704 m between abutments. The design is the winning concept of an international competition. The bridge was opened to traffic in 2005, and received the fib Award for Outstanding Structures, Special Mention, in 2006.
