The City of Helsinki has chosen Kruunusillat joint venture to construct the bridges in the Crown Bridges project. Kruunusillat is a joint venture of YIT and Kreate Oy. The total value of the contract is approximately EUR 123 million, of which YIT’s share is approximately EUR 61,5 million. There is a EUR 3 million option which the City of Helsinki will decide later. The contract will be booked in the order book after the two week long appeal period. The work will start in the fall 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2025.

The joint venture will construct the longest bridge in Finland, 1200 meters long Kruunuvuorensilta, that connects Korkeasaari and Kruunuvuorenranta. The project also includes the construction of a bridge, Finkensilta, that connects Nihti and Korkeasaari, as well as preconstruction works in Korkeasaari. 

In addition, YIT is a part of the Crown Bridges alliance consortium that includes the City of Helsinki, Helsinki City Transport, NRC Group Finland Oy, Ramboll Finland Oy and Sitowise Oy. The alliance will construct the Crown Bridges railway that will connect the Laajasalo, Korkeasaari and Kalasatama districts to the centre of Helsinki with a 10-kilometre tramway.
