Skanska to build new highway bridge Gothenburg for SEK 1.1 billion
Solna, Sweden – Skanska has been contracted to build the Partihall interchange in Gothenburg. The contract amount is SEK 1,125 M and is included in order bookings for the second quarter. The customer is the Swedish Road Administration, Western Region.
The new connection comprises a 1,100-meter four-lane bridge. The project includes on-ramps and connecting roads as well as landscaping and drainage piping work.
