Peab to build Malmö bridge

Swedish builder Peab has landed a $21m turnkey contract to build a bridge in the new borough of Varvsstaden in the Swedish city of Malmö.

Working on behalf of the city, the pedestrian, cycle and mass transit bridge will be an extension  of Styrmansgatan street.

Peab’s scope of work also includes building two piers, a staircase and risers.

Göran Wiking, Peab regional manager, 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.”

The bridge is due to be completed by November 2024.
