NARVIK, Norway, Oct. 13 (Xinhua) -- With a free span of 1,145 meters, the Halogaland Bridge in northern Norway that is being built by a Chinese company will be one of the longest suspension bridges in Europe when it opens for traffic in the summer of 2018.
Considered to be a "highly socioeconomically profitable" project, the Halogaland Bridge is located in the High North, 300 km north of the Arctic Circle, and crosses a fjord by the city of Narvik in northern Norway.
