The new railway bridge project over Södertälje Canal comprises the replacement of the 80 year old bridge, which has reached the end of its useful life. The new bridge consists of a main lifting span section spanning 57 m over the canal and two 70 m approach spans, one on each side of the main bridge. In total, the bridge is 229.5 m long. The main lifting section is a steel truss bridge structure and is capable of opening when large ships pass under. Normal elevation free height is 26.7 m and the top elevation is approximately 40.5 m. The approach spans are composite bridges with a main steel box girder and an in situ cast concrete top plate
