Bakklandet and Nidelva

Bakklandet is a neighborhood of Trondheim, Norway. It lies on the east side of the river Nidelva between Bakke Bridge and the Old Town Bridge. The area is dominated by small, wooden houses and narrow streets. It is among the major tourist attractions in the city.[1]

In 1965, the road plan for Trondheim proposed that the area large be demolished to make way for a four-lane motorway which would connect Elgeseter gate with Innherredsveien. The plans were met by opposition from locals, and by the early 1980s the plan was shelved, after the city's environmental council had approved depopulating the neighborhood in 1974.[1]
