THE KYLLING BRIDGE

The Kylling Bru at Verma at the head of Romsdalen valley carries the Rauma Railway from one side of the valley to the other. It is one of the best-known bridge structures in Norway and is often used as a symbol of good engineering and quality for products not remotely connected to bridges. The Romsdalen valley is extremely narrow here. The river Rauma is actually all the valley floor there is and the Kylling bridge connects the sides of the valley 60 metres above the surging waters. The Kylling bridge is built of blocks of granite in a self-supporting structure. It took all of ten years to build the bridge. The Rauma Railway was opened in 1924.
