The world’s largest bridge with a single arch is being built across the Ide Fjord at Svinesund. The bridge will form a part of the European highway, E6, which is the main route for all road traffic between Gothenburg and Oslo. The bridge is an elegant but structurally complicated bridge as it combines a very slender construction with a special structural form.

Due to the uniqueness of design and the importance of the bridge a monitoring project was initiated by the Swedish National Road Administration (Vägverket). The monitoring project, including measurements during the construction phase, the testing phase, and the first 5 years of operation, is coordinated by The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).
