Askøy bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses Byfjorden between Bergen and Askøy in Hordaland in Norway. It is 1057 meters long with a main span of 850 meters, making it the second longest suspension bridge in Norway after Hardanger bridge.
The first plans to replace the ferry with a bridge started in 1960. Various suggestions were coming. Construction began in 1989 and the bridge was opened on 12 December 1992. The bridge was a toll road until 2006.
