Högakustensbro/The High coast bridge

It is a suspension bridge crossing the mouth of the Ångermanälven river near Veda, on the border between the Härnösand and Kramfors municipalities in the province of Ångermanland in northern Sweden. The area is often referred to as The High Coast, hence its name. The bridge replaces Sandöbron, the old bridge across the river, in a new extension of the European route E4 (E4). It is the second longest suspension bridge in Scandinavia (after Great Belt Fixed Link in Denmark), the third longest in Europe, and the eleventh longest of the world.

This bridge is the fith longest bridge in Sweden.

Tjörnbron/Tjörn Bridge

The Tjörn Bridge (Swedish: Tjörnbron) is a cable-stayed bridge which together with two smaller bridges connects Stenungsund on mainland Sweden with the island Tjörn on the western coast of the country. The length is 664 m, the span width is 366 m, and the height above the water is 45 m.
Inaugurated in 1981, the bridge was built in record time after its predecessor, the Almö Bridge, which had been inaugurated in June 1960, collapsed after the bulk carrier MS Star Clipper collided with its span at 1:30 AM on 18 January 1980 in fog and darkness. Eight people died in 7 vehicles that plunged into the sea before the bridge could be closed.

Length (total, m.): 664 (about half of which is in Sweden), Span (m): 366, Type of traffic: Road, Opened in 1981.
