Gateway to West Sweden

Project: Landvetter Airport Bridge

Project category: Bridges & civil structures

Client: Svevia

Year: 2018

The new Landvetter Airport Bridge is an easily recognisable entrance to Gothenburg’s biggest airport, with an elliptical portal that enhances the feeling of being on your way. A gateway to West Sweden – and the rest of the world. We produced the structural design documentation.

The project in brief


An identity-bearing link

The bridge is an important link to Airport City – the district now emerging between National Road 40 and the airport on both sides of the approach road to the terminal.


Rounded shapes

With gently rounded shapes and no load-bearing elements in the centre, the bridge also seems to hover above the road.


Carefully selected materials

The materials are dominated by smooth, light concrete surfaces and black diabase from Skåne province – not only eye-catching but also long-term sustainable.
