The Stockholm bypass is a new route for the European freeway E4 past the Swedish capital. PERSPECTIVE Stockholm, together with landscape architects from Grontmij, are responsible for the road architecture of the southernmost part of the Stockholm Bypass ‘FSK01 Kungens Kurva’, located between Vårby Backe and Bredäng south of Stockholm. The project encompasses 5km of the E4 and E20 freeways with two multilevel roundabout crossings, ramps, ramp tunnel entrances and the main tunnel entrance of the underground part of the Stockholm Bypass, including a subterranean air exhaust station and auxilliary ventilation buildings. In addition, Perspective Stockholm designs bicycle and pedestrian facilities, including the freeway-crossing communication to the IKEA store, and a new bridge to the Heron City mall, as well as noise screens located on bridges and neighboring land. Construction has started with the bicycle and pedestrian bridge, doubling as part of the regional technical supply network inside of the box girder, which is to be opened in the autumn of 2016. On February 5 the 55m, 120 tonne main span was lifted into place. Construction is starting on two more parts and Perspective Stockholm is working on designs for tendering for the fourth and final part to be delivered in April 2016.
