Delivered by Ruukki, the Ypsilon pedestrian bridge in Drammen has

award is the second Nordic accolade Ruukki has received within a
short time.


The Norwegian Steel Association and Norwegian Structural Steel
Association voted the Y-shaped Ypsilon bridge winner of the award.
The award is made every other year for an innovatively constructed,
architecturally impressive steel construction or structure. The
bridge has previously received a Certificate of Nomination in the

tower and deck. The work was carried out by Ruukki's Sandnessj°en
unit in Norway. Construction was completed in November 2007 and the
bridge was opened in August 2008.
