Peab builds two bridges in Upplands-Bro
Peab has been commissioned to build two movable bridges over Almarestäket and Erikssund. The customer is the Swedish Transport Administration and the contract is worth SEK 204 million.
The two bridges that will be replaced with new ones have reached the end of their technological life. The bridge on Road 263 that goes over Håtunaviken at Erikssund is on the border of Sigtuna Municipality and Upplands-Bro Municipality and the other bridge is on Road 841 and goes over Almarestäket at the border of Järfälla Municipality and Upplands-Bro Municipality. Both the bridges will have wider lanes and the safety of unprotected pedestrians and bicyclists will be improved through special lanes for them.
“We’re very pleased to be part of building two new bridges that improve traffic safety and bearing capacity. Participating in making sure we have safe and reliable bridges is important work for us as community builders and we are proud of it. We have found a number of synergies between the two bridges such as technical constructions already now in the planning stage,” says Thomas Larsson, Product Manager Peab Civil Engineering.
The project is a turnkey contract. Construction on both bridges is expected to begin in the fall of 2021 and be completed during 2024.
The project will be order registered in the second quarter 2021.
