Pyhäjoki Railway Bridge


Graphic Concrete Pyhäjoki Railway Bridge

When renovating the two railway bridges, Savsilta and Pyhäjoki, precast panels were used for the impact railings. 

Bridges are, for some reason, regarded as a secondary type of construction in comparison to buildings. When I got the opportunity to design these bridges, I decided to get all the fun out of it! The bridges would not have been created as such had I not seen the possibility of influencing the quality of the built environment and if Ramboll had not grasped this opportunity, also."

“The bridge railing pattern contains a riddle. The lines and full stop marks mirror fast rail traffic and the stops along the way.”
