The Atlantic Road

(expand to full screen for a better view)

The Atlantic Road in Norway is built on several small islands and reefs, and is crossed by eight bridges, several roads and overpasses.
The route was originally proposed as a railway line in the early 20th century, but was ultimately abandoned. Serious planning of the road started in the 1970s, and construction started on August 1, 1983. During construction, the area was hit by twelve hurricanes. The road was opened on  July 7, 1989.
This road has a view of the open sea, which is rare on the roads along the Norwegian coast. You can see fjords and mountains nearby as you drive.
