  • The Hising Bridge (Götaälvbron) is marked out to become a new landmark for Gothenburg. It will aesthetically and literally connect the city and its vital harbour.

  • Broen er 440 meter lang og har et spektakulært midterfag, der båret af fire markante tårne kan løftes 30 meter over vandspejlet. De 4 pyloner blev sejlet fra Spanien til Göteborg og monteret på broen i juli 2020.

    In 2013, Dissing+Weitling won the competition for the design of the bridge, beating a strong field of competitors, including Zaha Hadid, Snøhetta and Wilkinson Eyre.
  • The bridge offers a nice public boardwalk on the riverbank, creating an attractive new urban space for the citizens and visitors of the appealing city. It is one piece of the puzzle in the overall plan for the city's development: a portal for shipping and a landmark for Gothenburg.

    The new bridge is approximately 440 metres long and has a spectacular midsection, which can be raised 28 metres above the water, carried by four distinctive towers.
