The Källösund Bridge is a part of a road link to a group of islands north of Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. The bridge was built in 1960 as a free cantilever box beam. When an assessment of the bearing capacity was made in the late 1990´s it was found that the capacity for sagging moment in the superstructure close to the abutments was to low. Special inspections showed that casting joints in those parts of the bridge were cracked but the cracks were closed. To maintain the bridge open for full traffic loads while awaiting strengthening to be designed and executed the bridge was monitored. The bridge will be strengthened during 2004.
