Bridge construction work for Scandinavia

Bridge construction: This is the bed for the 750cm (24.6 ft) long suspension bridge over the water. The main span is 470cm (15.4 ft), the secondary spans are 140cm (4.6 ft) each. Raodbed plus trackbed sum up to 26cm (10.2 inches). In contrast to the prototype (inspired by the Størebelt - bridge), this structure carries cars and trains.
