Just outside the city of Arendal, there’s an island called Tromøy. Isolated and remote, the island used to be accessible only by boat, and during the heavy Norwegian winter season, you had to walk or ski across the ice. With no road connection to the mainland, delivering goods to Tromøy was a logistical nightmare.
The Mayor of Tromøy, envisioned in 1938 a plan to build a bridge over the fjord from Tromøy to Arendal. It took 60 men over 2 years to complete the 400-meter-long suspension bridge, at the time one of the longest of its kind. On the 21st of October 1961, the day had finally come, when all citizens of Tromøy could enjoy the comforts of the mainland.
