THE GREATEST ROAD CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT IN THE NORDIC COUNTRIES. FINLAND IS CONSTRUCTING WITH SWEDISH ASSISTANCE

THIS IS A REPORT ON THE MOTORWAY PROJECT BETWEEN HELSINKI AND LAHTI IN FINLAND; THE MOTORWAY COVERS A DISTANCE OF 100 KILOMETERS. MANY SWEDISH COMPANIES ARE ENGAGED IN THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROJECT, AND TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS USED IN SWEDEN ARE NOW BEING INTRODUCED, E.G., A BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION METHOD AT KORS, JOKIVARSI. THE LOAD-BEARING PART OF THE FORMWORK CONSISTS OF A 42 METER-LONG MOULD ELEMENT WHICH IS HYDRAULICALLY CONTROLLED. SINCE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO PIERS IS 20 METERS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO LET THE MOULD ELEMENT AADVANCE 40 METERS AT A TIME. /TRRL/
