SYSTRA SWS teams, as part of a turnkey project consortium commissioned by the engineering firm Degree of Freedom, will lead the geotechnical studies for the project as part of the bridge design, for the Norwegian constructor Consto Anlegg Sør AS.
A COMMITMENT TO SOFT MODES
This new bridge dedicated to soft mobility demonstrates the Norwegian authorities’ commitment to supporting the development of active modes of transport. Its location over the Porsgrunnelva River, which flows into the Baltic Sea, will not block boat traffic: its central span will be equipped with two tilting flaps to open the passage to shipping, several times a day.
SYSTRA ASSERTS ITSELF ON THE ELEVATED STRUCTURES MARKET IN NORWAY
Norway has a rugged terrain throughout its territory, which means that it needs bridges, viaducts, and overhead structures to develop its transport networks. SYSTRA is working with the country on several major projects, including the doubling of the Grenland Bridge in Design & Build, on behalf of the constructor Eiffage.
Norway is also very committed to the development of soft mobility, and our local teams are working on the construction of a pedestrian and cycle bridge a pedestrian and cycle bridge near the Romsdal fjord, in cooperation with Degree of Freedom, as in Porsgrunn.
