Speedy infrastructure partnership

BBR Network member Spennteknikk is working hand-in-hand with main contractor Skanska on an ambitious motorway project in Norway

The Public Private Partnership E18 motorway project for Statens vegvesen will see the construction of 8 km of four-lane motorway running from Langaker to Bommestad in south east Norway. Spennteknikk is supplying the post-tensioning for no less than 13 bridges on the new route. It is anticipated that they will use around 300 t of pre-stressing steel – and they have chosen BBR post-tensioning systems. The project will be completed two months ahead of the original schedule – in June 2009. (Photographs courtesy of Byggeindustrien magazine).
