The Stockholm bypass

The Stockholm Bypass is classed as one of the largest infrastructure projects in progress in Sweden. The Swedish Transport Administration, apart from setting strict requirements for safety and durability, also has set high stylistic requirements. For this reason, great importance will be placed on making the aesthetics and technology function as a seamless whole. Tyréns is responsible for designing the lighting of the artworks in the tunnels.

The commission from the Swedish Transport Administration also includes lighting engineering design work and the delivery of 3D models of the finished solution with the help of VR technology.

The Stockholm Bypass is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Swedish history and it is estimated to be complete in 2026. At which time, Tyréns commission will also be completed and the artworks by Backa Carin Ivarsdotter, Ebba Bohlin and Bigert & Bergström will be illuminated for road users driving through the tunnels.
