Skanska and Pöyry win Finnish road

A team made up of Skanska and Pöyry has beaten three other consortia to win the contract for a stretch of the city of Lahti's southern ring road in Finland.

The Finnish Transport Agency appointed the Valtari following negotiations with all consortia competing for the work, which will be carried out under an alliance model. The client, designers and contractors work closely together. All the alliance parties are responsible for project design and construction, have jointly agreed target costs for the project, share the risks and opportunities agreed together, form a joint organisation and will work in the same premises.

The project will encompass interchanges, tunnels and 12 bridges. It covers the Lahti stretch, as part of a larger scheme to develop the city’s southern ring road. The overall goal is to ensure smoother and safer road traffic on Highway 12, as well as to advance new development opportunities in land use, business and commerce in the Lahti region.
