The Hagelsund Bridge (Norwegian: Hagelsundbrua) is a suspension bridge in Hordaland county, Norway. The bridge connects the island of Flatøy (in Meland municipality) with the village of Knarvik (in Lindås municipality) on the mainland. The length of the bridge is 623 metres (2,044 ft) with the largest of the 9 spans being 250 metres (820 ft) wide. The bridge consists of 2 lanes with car traffic heading in opposite directions, and a walkway for pedestrians and bicycles. The bridge has a 50-metre (160 ft) clearance above the ocean for boats to pass beneath the bridge.
The bridge was opened in 1982 and together with the Nordhordland Bridge and the Krossnessund Bridge, it is a part of the triangular bridge network connecting Flatøy with the island of Holsnøy to the west, the city of Bergen to the south, and the municipality of Lindås to the east.
