Default The bridge on the four-lane Highway E18 has collapsed in Norway

The bridge on the four-lane Highway E18 has collapsed in Norway

A bridge on the E18 at Bentsrud Holmestrand has fallen partly together. No person shall be injured.

The road will be closed for a very long time to come. It's been a landslide under the bridge, so that the pillars supporting the bridge upstairs has failed. There is a serious dump on the bridge, and the pillar of the bridge hanging in the air, says Jarle Steinnes, duty fire chief in Vestfold inter municipal fire departments,

Each working day passes it approximately 10,000 cars on this bridge

on Friday evening and Sunday evening passes it approximately 20,000 - 25,000 cars on this bridge

this partial of the E 18 has a speed limit of 68.35 MPH

I'm so happy because I drive this route several times during the week

it will be so fun


The detour roads is just small two lane country roads

And they have a speed limit of 31 MPH - 37 MPH

I am soooooo looking forward to this..... Not
