Lysefjord (iv) Bridge

The Norwegians have invested their oil extraction revenues into a fund that benefits every Norwegian. In addition they have built roads through their country, tunnelling through the mountains from fjord to fjord.

Not to mention bridges across the narrowest point of some fjords like this elegant one across Lysefjord:-

There’s a solid rock mountain at one end of the bridge necessitating a sharp right turn (or left turn if you’re coming the other way):-

Edited to add:- there are some more photpgraphs of the bridge here. looking at the one on the right hand-side of the page it seems you can turn right or left (through a tunnel) at the cliff end of the bridge; which wasn’t obvious from fjord level.
