Peab to build new bridge in Sweden’s Varvsstaden i Malmö city borough

WCN Editorial Team 5 May 2022 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Peab has secured a contract to construct a new bridge to the new city borough of Varvsstaden i Malmö in Sweden.

This bridge will be built by Peab for its customer Malmö City.

The contract is worth $21.6m (SEK206m).

Under the contract, Peab will construct a bridge to cater for pedestrians, bicyclists as well as mass transit as an extension of Styrmansgatan, which lies diagonally westward towards the city borough.


The project also covers construction of two piers, a staircase and risers.

Furthermore, Södra Varvsbassängen will be raised and a new staircase constructed, stated Peab.

Södra Varvsbassängen will be graded up with the placement of 50,000m2 of excavated soil in three layers with an average depth of 4m to 6.5m.

Peab region manager Göran Wiking said: “A bridge to Varvsstaden will contribute to smoother communication for pedestrians, bicyclists and mass transit and thereby reduce car traffic to and from Västra Hamnen.

“It feels natural to take on work in another area of this new city borough where we’re already renovating and building. We’re preserving history in Varvsstaden and at the same time winding it into the future with great environmental care.”

This turnkey contract is expected to be finished in November 2024.

Peab will record this order in Q2 2022.
