Skansen Bridge in Trondheim.
This bridge is a railway bridge, designed by Joseph Strauss, who also constructed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, USA. It opened on March 22, 1918, allowing trains access from south to Trondheim. And also being abel to open so that boats and ships can sail between Trondheim Canal and Trondheimsfjorden.
In 2006 the bridge was conserved by the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage. This conservation includes the entire bridge construction and technical equipment, the guard building and the transformer building, but not the railway track, signal equipment and overhead wires.
The bridge is functional and in use today.
