Tana Bridge

‘The main principle for the lighting of Tana Bridge is that it should be an attraction, reinforcing the clean design of the bridge design, providing high traffic safety, visual comfort and being reliable in operation under the harsh, arctic climate conditions.’

The new Tana Bridge is a 200 m long new E6 bridge in Finnmark, which replaces the old bridge over the Tana river. The new bridge is a cable-stayed bridge with an asymmetrical tower and a centric cable plane. The lighting concept is based on communication. The bridge is important for the accessibility of the area and creates an important link for transportation and communication in the region. The project symbolizes progress and innovation and has a strong connection to the local culture. The objective of the lighting design is to achieve local and national pride by creating an internationally recognized landmark. Meanwhile the bridge shall communicate with traffic participants and distant observers through dynamic lighting schemes, interaction and experience.
