About the project:
The Crown Bridges Light Rail (FI: Kruunusillat) involves the construction of three new bridges in Helsinki, Finland, which will connect various neighborhoods and improve transportation in the region. The project has been divided into two phases, with the first phase focusing on the construction of a tramway between Laajasalo and Hakaniemi, including three bridges (Merihaka Bridge, Finke Bridge, and Kruunuvuori Bridge). The second phase will implement a tramway between Hakaniemi and Helsinki Central Railway Station.
The Crown Bridges Consortium formed by Kreate and YIT Finland Ltd, is responsible for the construction of the Kruunuvuori Bridge and Finke Bridge. The Crown Bridges Consortium uses Pointscene.
This project is funded by the City of Helsinki and the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency. The primary goal of the Crown Bridges project is to improve transportation in the Helsinki metropolitan area by creating new connections between the city’s eastern and western regions. The new bridges will also provide more efficient routes for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transportation.

The Crown Bridges Consortium project will include two out of three bridges from the entire project in Helsinki, Finland. The first bridge, Kruunuvuori Bridge (Kruunuvuorensilta), is set to become not only the longest bridge in Finland (1191 m), but also the tallest (135 m) and has the longest span (260 m). The second bridge is the Finke Bridge (293 m long). The construction began in the fall 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2026.
The Crown Bridges Consortium is responsible for the construction of the Kruunuvuori Bridge and Finke Bridge at a total price of approximately EUR 123 million.
The primary goal of the Crown Bridges Light Rail project is to improve transportation in the Helsinki metropolitan area by creating new connections between the city’s eastern and western regions. The new bridges will also provide more efficient routes for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transportation. The project has high goals with the innovative use of technologies such as drone mapping and 3D modeling.
To aid in the planning and construction process, Crown Bridges Consortium has implemented innovative technologies such as drone mapping and 3D modeling. Additionally, the project is utilizing Pointscene, a cloud-based platform for managing and sharing geospatial data. Pointscene enables Crown Bridges Consortium to easily share drone orthophotos with other platforms like Trimble Connect, Infrakit and Vektor.io, streamlining collaboration and communication among the various stakeholders involved in the project. With Pointscene, Crown Bridges Consortium can efficiently manage and share geospatial data, making it easier to keep all stakeholders informed and up-to-date throughout the project.
