Sweco part of constructing the Crown Bridges tramway in Helsinki

Sweco is part of the alliance group that will construct the new Crown Bridges tramway in Helsinki, Finland. It will become Finland’s longest bridge. Work is expected to start this autumn.

The Crown Bridges will connect Laajasalo, Korkeasaari and Kalasatama to the city center via three new bridges and a 10 km tramline. The new bridges are designed to cater tramway and light traffic. There will also be a new maritime route for cyclists and pedestrians. When completed in 2026, the Crown Bridges will with its 1,200 meters become the longest bridge in Finland.

Sweco has been a part of the alliance group responsible for the project development phase since 2019 together with NRC Group Finland, YIT Corporation, Ramboll Finland and Sitowise Group. Sweco’s part of the first phase of the new Crown Bridges tramway accounts for approximately EUR 4 million.

“Sweco is responsible for building plans and assessments for almost all engineering parts within the Crown Bridges project. The design of the new tramway is strongly driven by the principle of sustainable development,” says Juho Siipo, Director of Infrastructure at Sweco Finland.

Sweco is currently involved in all ongoing tramway alliance-projects in Finland.
