Scandiaconsult wins commission on Road 50

Scandiaconsult wins commission on Road 50 Road 50 through Motala will be given a new alignment and Scandiaconsult has been commissioned to plan the new throughway and a 700 meter long elevated bridge over Motalaviken. The assignment is worth over SEK 12 million and is scheduled for completion in 2003. The client is the Swedish National Road Administration, Southeastern Region. Road 50 carries traffic from Ödeshög on the north shore of Lake Vättern through Motala and on towards Örebro and Bergsslagen. At present the road runs across a bascule bridge over the Göta Canal in downtown Motala, creating problems in the flow of traffic. The new throughway will be a 5.5 km bypass that will move traffic outside central Motala. "It is highly satisfying that the National Road Administration has chosen to partner with Scandiaconsult in the Road 50 project through Motala", says Stefan Gustafsson at Scandiaconsult's Malmö office, which will be responsible for leading the project. "This assignment suits Scandiaconsult perfectly, since we are good at taking total responsibility for major projects and coordinating the many technical competencies that are involved." The road section contains three major traffic interchanges and eight small bridges aside from the 700 meter elevated bridge. The assignment will be shared by Scandiaconsult's branch offices in Malmö, Stockholm and Gothenburg. The Malmö office will be responsible for project management, road planning, environmental engineering and geotechnology, with the bridge department in Stockholm will handle planning and design of the elevated bridge and the Gothenburg office will contribute expertise in environmental impact assessments and landscape design.
