The main section of the Vekaransalmi bridge has been lifted on place. The picture shows 360 tons of steel delivered from our Oulu production plant on the way up. The elevation of the main block progressed one meter per hour and required our men to have nerves of steel and good pressure resistance. The lifting took total of 27 hours.
The bridge project will be fully completed by the end of 2019. When completed, the Vekaransalmi bridge is the fifth longest bridge in Finland with its length of 639 meters.
