Ekelundsbron

Local nameEkelundsbron
LocationSveriges Landskap, Sweden

Ekelundsbron is a bridge in Stockholm, Sweden. Passing over the canal Karlbergskanalen, it connects the city district Stadshagen on Kungsholmen to the northern suburb Solna.

The bridge is named after the crofter's holding once found nearby called Ekelund or Eklundstorpet, which also gave its name to the shanty town found here around 1880. The bridge was earlier called Karlbergsbron.Historically, the bridge was a simple wooden bridge crossing a clogged canal. When the canal was rebuilt in 1864, a 34.5-metre-long and 5.5-metre-wide steel swing bridge replaced the old bridge. A 12-metre-wide concrete bridge resting on concrete arches built in 1956 proved insufficient by 1969 and was thus replaced by a 24-metre-wide bridge.
