ET | Source:Skanska AB
Skanska has, in joint venture with Danish MT Höjgaard AS, been commissioned to
construct the bridge Södra Marieholmsbron over Göta Älv and Säveån in
Gothenburg, Sweden. Client is the Swedish Transport Administration
(Trafikverket). The contract is worth a total of SEK 791 M, of which Skanska's
70 percent share amounts to SEK 554 M. The contract will be included in order
bookings for Skanska Sweden for the fourth quarter 2013.
The project includes a 1.5 kilometer long rail bridge, ranging from Kville rail
yard in the north to Olskroken in the south. Parallel to, and directly adjacent
to the new railway bridge, a new pedestrian and cycle bridge will be built.
The new bridge, which is part of the Marieholm connection, will result in the
expansion of an additional track on an openable rail bridge parallel to the
existing line. Skanska also built the first part of the Marieholm connection
which opened in December 2011.
Construction start is scheduled for the first quarter of 2014 and Södra
Marieholmsbron is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2017. The
project will at the peak period employ approximately 130 people.
