We will build the Atlantinsilta bridge in Jätkäsaari for the City of Helsinki. When completed, it will serve both local residents and passengers arriving at the West Terminal. There will be lanes for trams and cars on the bridge.

The bridge to be built is a bridge over a waterway, which involves underwater diving, excavation and concreting operations. Foundation engineering, shore and quay structures, roads, municipal engineering, lighting and parts of the Madeiranaukio square will be constructed in connection with the bridge construction. The project will also involve a substantial amount of pile driving. For example, a total of approximately 14 kilometres of bored piles will be driven.
“The Atlantinsilta contract requires diverse competence from the contractor. The contract has a tight schedule with predefined milestones. Completing the contract will require good cooperation from all of the parties involved,” says Project Director Jukka Repo from the City of Helsinki’s Public Works Department.
Due to the location of the site, more attention is paid to the occupational safety regarding, for example, wind conditions.
The Atlantinsilta bridge construction receives support from the European Union as part of the Twin-Port project concerning the development of the operations at the West Harbour in Helsinki and the Old City Harbour in Tallinn.
