A railway bridge collapsed in Norway due to flooding after storm Hans passed

The already collapsed pillar was badly damaged last week under the pressure of a large amount of water. Storm Hans then caused real devastation in parts of Norway and Sweden. As a result, the railway bridge is no longer used for train traffic.

Rebuilding the bridge will take some time, Norwegian railway company Bane Nor assures. “There is no danger that the bridge will be carried further by the river,” says railway director Sigbjørn Korsgård. “We want to get the bridge out of the water as soon as possible to ensure a good flow and to be able to put a new bridge over the river.”

Passengers will be transported between Lillehammer and Trondheim by buses for the time being. According to Bane Nor, several railway lines have already been closed due to landslides and flooding caused by Storm Hans.
