Peab builds bridge to Varvstaden in Malmö

Peab has been commissioned to build a new bridge to the new city borough Varvsstaden i Malmö. The customer is Malmö City and the contract is worth SEK 206 million.

Peab will build a bridge for pedestrians, bicyclists and mass transit as an extension of Styrmansgatan, diagonally westward towards Varvsstaden. The project also includes building two piers, a staircase and risers. In addition, Södra Varvsbassängen will be raised and a new staircase built. Södra Varvsbassängen will be graded up by placing 50,000 m2 of excavated soil in three layers with an average depth of 6.5 meters to 4 meters.

“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,” says Göran Wiking, Region Manager Peab. 

The project is a turnkey contract and is expected to be completed in the November 2024.

The project will be order registered in the second quarter 2022.
