Lemminkäinen and the City of Helsinki have signed three contracts for the renovation of six bridges and the tram stops on Siltasaarenkatu. The total value of the contracts is EUR 9.2 million. The work will be carried out during 2013.
Two of the bridges to be renovated are located in Ruoholahti and on Vihdintie. The customer for this contract, which is worth EUR 4.8 million, is the City of Helsinki Public Works Department. Work has already begun and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2013.
Lemminkäinen is renovating four bridges in Lauttasaari for the same customer, the City of Helsinki Public Works Department. The contract is worth EUR 2.1 million and work will be carried out in May - October 2013.
Lemminkäinen is replacing tram tracks and refurbishing tram stops on Siltasaarenkatu, near the Hakaniemi metro station. Lemminkäinen is also renovating the waterproofing in the roof of Hakaniemi metro station's ticket hall. The customer for this contract is Helsinki City Transport. The contract is worth EUR 2.3 million. Work has already begun and is scheduled for completion in October 2013.
"Lemminkäinen has been developing bridge renovation techniques, and we will be able to harness this expertise during these projects. All the work will be carried out on heavily trafficked roads, which will pose its own challenges. However, we are aiming to cause as little disturbance to surrounding traffic as possible," says Lemminkäinen's Regional Director Mikko Immonen.
