work under way on Hålogaland bridge steelwork

Work on the steel structures for the Hålogaland bridge in Narvik, northern Norway, is “formally under way”, although the actual construction of the steelwork will only start in the second half of this year and it will take some time until it gets delivered to Norway.

From China, that is. The steelwork for the suspension bridge, to be the second longest of its kind in Norway, was awarded last October to a Chinese contractor, Sichuan Road and Bridge Group, about which I wrote a thing or two a couple of months ago.

A minor accident (unrelated to the work of the Chinese contractor) occurred last week at the building site.
