Bridge Engineer

Magnús Arason, Bridge Engineer at EFLA, is attending the conference, where he will be presenting two recent EFLA bridge projects. These projects are the new footbridge across Breiðholtsbraut motorway in Reykjavik and the strengthening of two steel bridges in the south of Norway, introducing the “coiled-pins” strengthening method that has never been used in Norway before.
