Nonnekloppen (“the Nun´s bridge”) is a 72 m long steel footbridge that provides an important connection within a popular cycle- and footpath network around the Store Lungegårdsvann lake in central Bergen. The project is a part of Miljøløftet, a state- and municipality funded cooperation focused towards improving infrastructure for environmentally sustainable transport in the area around Bergen and reduction of traffic and CO2 emissions.
The paper addresses the main features of the bridge configuration and provides an overview of some of the challenges that were encountered during the construction of the bridge.
