The 6th International Symposium on Strait Crossings – Extreme Crossings and New Technologies – will take place 16–19 June 2013 in Bergen, Norway.
Straits and sounds, as well as inlets and fjords, are barriers for road and rail transport. These barriers can be overcome using fixed links or ferries. Strait crossings greatly influence transport costs and impact social development, the environment and the total energy consumption, as well as traffic safety issues.
The symposium is organised by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian Society of Graduate Technical and Scientific Professionals.
