The world’s longest bridge without drawings
Project E16 Eggemoen-Åsbygda connects the existing E16 to Åsbygda, about 50km northwest of Oslo, near Hønefoss. The section cuts through a varied, virgin landscape that crosses the Randselva river and a railway track. Its purpose is to improve the accessibility and safety of traffic for all groups of road users. The project includes around 1.6km of road, the 634m long Randselva bridge, as well as a roundabout.
The Randselva bridge is built as a 13.5m wide concrete box bridge,
partly as a balanced free-structure, and partly with the moveable scaffolding method (MSS). It has a continuous superstructure with a main span of 200m and six piles that vary in height between 5m and 42m. At the highest point, the bridge deck is 55m above ground level.
This Design & Build contract is based solely on BIM models; which makes it the world's longest bridge built completely without drawings, and received the TEKLA Global BIM Award.

Building Information Modelling, or BIM, is an integrative, digital approach to project management in the construction sector.© SWECO
The BIM model enables the digital visualisation of all architectural, technical, physical and functional construction data to create a digital building data model.© SWECO
BIM is used in the cost estimation and construction planning phase but also offers information and benefits during construction.© SWECO
All of the participants in the project can use all the information right from the start of the project.© PNC
