Kungs Norrby Aqueduct


Built: 1993
Technical facts: The acqueduct was built in connection with the rerouting of Road 34.

History of the aqueduct
Work on the aqueduct began after the canal had been drained. Instead of building the aqueduct in place, it was transported ready-built by boat to Kungs Norrby. It weighed 4,500 tons and was moved a distance of 70 metres on land. After lifting the aqueduct on twelve jacking points, four horizontal jacks were used to push it forward. The 47-metre long and 18-metre wide structure was moved at a rate of three metres an hour until it was finally in place.
