Photographer's Note

There is a tram network building project going on in Tampere. The line will cross the Tammerkoski rapid right at the city centre on the Hämeensilta bridge. Hämeensilta was built in 1929, and it was decided that considering the present condition of the bridge, it is wise to rebuild it totally before building the tram line.

The project is done one half at a time lengthwise so that there is no need for complete traffic closure. Here we see the southern half of the bridge torn down. Northern half will be done after the southern half is ready. Original lining stones were carefully stored, so the rebuilt bridge will look exactly like the original.
