Haverud Akvedukt Dalsland Sweden

The Aqueduct in Hoverud, Dalsland, Sweden was build in 1868 and is a combination of a railway bridge, bridge for normal traffic and an aqueduct. There are tree shipping companies trafficking the canal, it's M/S Dalslandia, M/S Storholmen and M/S Dalsland

The aqueduct was created by the famous canal builder Nils Ericson. Because of the specific local conditions in Håverud it was not possible to build a normal lock for the boats; the ground rock was to soft, the stream to rapid and the slope to steep. Nils Ericson then invented the Aqueduct. It's a freely hanging bridge where the water is led in a 33.5 meter long channel above the stream. The metal is joined together by 33000 rivets. Until now none has been replaced.
