On Sunday 5 September, The King opened the Hisingsbron Bridge over the Göta Älv river in Gothenburg.
The new Hisingsbron Bridge links central Gothenburg with the island of Hisingen, and replaces the old Götaälvbron Bridge which has been used since 1939.
Triple & Touch performed during the ceremony, together with young gymnasts, dancers and musicians.
In his speech on the Hisingsbron Bridge, The King said:
A new landmark has been created from concrete and 7,500 tonnes of steel, giving the city's skyline a new silhouette. This project has required enormous courage and innovation. Both from the City of Gothenburg and from those of you who have carried out the actual construction.
HM The King
Earlier during the day, The King had begun his visit to Gothenburg by taking part in a seminar about the Hisingsbron Bridge, during which project representatives described the construction work.
After the seminar, The King went on board the Sound Horizon barge for a guided tour of the Hisingsbron Bridge from the water and a chance to see its structure and design up close. Back on land, the tour continued along Norra Älvstranden. During his visit, The King also saw how the demolition work on the old Götaälvbron Bridge is continuing.
