Pöyry has been awarded the project and site engineering services contract by the Swiss federal road office (ASTRA) for traffic management systems in the Northern bypass in Zurich, Switzerland. Pöyry's share of the assignment amounts to about EUR 1.7 million.
The scope of the work comprises project planning and onsite engineering, project management and quality control, quality assurance testing of materials and equipment, theoretical and on-the-job training for the operator and inspection of the completed works. Pöyry will provide the services in association with Erb + Partner AG and Edy Toscano AG, Switzerland.
The northern bypass of Zurich is a heavily used motorway with several tunnels and junctions.
