NCC to construct Landborgen link in Helsingborg
In partnership with the City of Helsingborg, NCC is to construct the Landborgen link, a six-story underground car and bicycle garage as well as pedestrian and bicycle ways, which will join the city districts above the approximately 20-meter-high Landborgen cliff with the city center. The total order value is an estimated SEK 350 million.
“The Landborgen link is one piece of the puzzle to develop the city center. It is a thoroughfare that will level out height differences in Helsingborg and make it easier for pedestrians and cyclists to get around. It will also make it easier for cyclists and motorists to park and reach central areas of Helsingborg without having to travel through the city,” says Marie Holmqvist, Project Manager at the City of Helsingborg’s Urban Planning Administration.
The project will be carried out in partnering form in two phases. The first phase will commence immediately, where NCC in partnership with the City of Helsingborg will study technical systems and materials, prepare the construction design, as well as a detailed time schedule and construction target price for the assignment. The second, construction phase is scheduled to begin in autumn 2018. The Landborgen link is scheduled for completion in 2020.
“Building a parking garage for 600 cars and a similar number of bicycles inside Landborgen is an exciting and technically challenging project, which is highly suitable for NCC’s organization. Together with the City of Helsingborg, we will build a modern and accessible parking garage and a safe and secure thoroughfare with escalators and elevators up and down from Landborgen for pedestrians and cyclists,” says Nils Bjelm, Division Manager of NCC Infrastructure.
The order value is about SEK 350 million, and is expected to be registered during the fourth quarter of 2018 in the NCC Infrastructure business area.
