History of the bridge
There was already a wooden bridge on the approach to Ljung West in 1825, but it was damaged in 1834. In 1840, the Canal Company ordered an iron bridge from Motala Verkstad but for some reason it was never delivered. Instead, a bridge was built at Stafsjö and installed in 1843.
