The new and the old Drammen bridge superstructures are to be covered beneath by a bridge enclosure consisting of aluminium sandwich plates in a steel grid attached to the superstructure soffit. This solution is introduced to give a certain shape beneath the bridges and to make them appear as one structure instrad of two. The extent of the panelling is very large since it covers the whole width of bothe briges, the gap in betwwen and a total length of more than 1700 m. A total of 42 000 m² of this panelled ceiling will be installed.
