The contract is valued at up to $17.29m (SEK157m).

Tullgarn Bridge, a key development underway in the south side of the city, is part of the infrastructure expansion in Uppsala.

It will serve as a connection to the residential areas in Kungsängen with Studenternas IP, a multi-use stadium, the city park ‘Stadsträdgården’, and Uppsala University Hospital.

The bridge is the third moveable bridge to be built by Peab for Uppsala Municipality, following Vind Bridge and Flottsund Bridge.

Peab product manager Thomas Larsson said: “We look forward to working together with Uppsala Municipality once again and starting construction of Tullgarn Bridge.

“The bridge is a vital part of Uppsala’s community development and we hope we can reduce the congestion on the city’s other bridges over the river and create better passability for Uppsala residents.”

According to the company, Tullgarn Bridge will be constructed as a bascule bridge over Fyris River.

It will have connecting roads, as well as pedestrian and bicycle paths.

With a total of 60m in length, Tullgarn Bridge will have one car lane in each direction. It will also a four metre wide pedestrian and bicycle path on its sides.

Uppsala Municipality project manager Stefan Bergerstam said: “Now that the procurement process is over we’re entering the next stage of the project which is building Tullgarn Bridge and the connecting streets.

“The bridge also enables reducing the traffic in parts of the city center. For Uppsala Municipality Tullgarn Bridge and its design will create a landmark in the city.”

Peab noted that the bridge planning will commence immediately, with construction scheduled to begin in January next year.

Tullgarn Bridge completion is expected in 2023.
