Peab has been commissioned by Uppsala Municipality build the Tullgarn Bridge under a contract worth approximately US$17.3 million.
The 60m-long bridge will have one car lane in each direction as well as a 4m-wide pedestrian and bicycle path on each side.
The leaf that lifts will be built entirely in corten steel. The connecting leaf will be built in concrete but in a corten form and both abutments will be clad in granite. The vertical lift operation will be by means of rope machinery in one of the bridge supports.
Tullgarn Bridge is the third moveable bridge that Peab will have built for Uppsala Municipality after Flottsund Bridge and Vind Bridge.
Construction is expected to start in January 2022 and the bridge is due for completion in the winter of 2023.
