Varoddbridge 1, 2 and 3.

The New Varodd Bridge is parallel to the older bridge, and was completed in 1993 at a cost of US$13 million.

It is a cantilever bridge with four spans. The main span is 260 metres (850 ft) and a total length of 663 metres (2,175 ft).

The bridge has a 32-metre (105 ft) clearance below it.

The bridge was built solely to relieve the traffic on the older bridge, and the two lanes only handles westbound traffic.

 

Another new cantilever bridge for eastbound traffic is under construction between the old and new Varodd Bridge. It will be completed by 2020.
