The Old Geiranger Road

Vi lar bildet av denne gamle steinbroen stå som et minne og norsk veibygging over den gamle Geiranger-veien i et land hvor  det å bygge vei ofte ikke er forbundet med enkle løsninger.
Det tok 300 mann 8 år å bygge denne veien som er 38 km lang, med 9 bruer, med bratteste stigning på 8% ( 0 – 1038 m.o.h.), med 29 svinger og 5364 stabbesteiner!
Dessverre ble bildet en gang tatt i 4:3, og det er derfor nødvendig å scrolle for å få hele bildet med seg.
Picture 1022bWe’ll let this picture stand as a memory over the ‘Old Geiranger Rd. aand ‘Norwegian Road building’ in a country where building roads not always ment ‘easy solutions’.
This particular road was built by 300 men working for 8 years building a road 38 km long, having 9 separate bridges, 29 turns, steepest elevation of 8 degrees and marked by 5364
solid roadstones. Unfortunately this picture was once shot in 4:3, which means that the motif is somewhat damaged. (Sorry!)
(Complimentys of SRB)

Please take me back to the INDEX for a new destination.
