Extensive assignment on City Line, a new railway line in Stockholm
SWECO will carry out an extensive consulting assignment, along with Carl Bro, for the planned Stockholm City Line, which will result in increased track capacity through central Stockholm. The assignment covers planning and conceptual design of new stations and exits. The volume of the assignment amounts to at least 2 million euros.
The City Line has importance for the whole of Sweden, since more than three quarters of all railway traffic passes through Stockholm, or has direct connections to trains through Stockholm. The City Line covers a stretch of around 7 km, of which 5.6 km is in tunnels.
The assignment will carry on through to 2005 and comprises the planning of two new stations and their exits. It is a very complicated project, since the line crosses the existing underground, other tunnels and various utility systems buried in the ground. Additionally, several of the exits will be built where there are already buildings and civil structures.
“Being part of this complex assignment for the City Line is very exciting. SWECO has extensive experience from similar projects, including Citytunnel in Malmo, Sweden. We look forward to taking advantage of earlier experiences in this important railway project,” advises Håkan Asmoarp, SWECO’s Project Leader.
The assignment covers planning within many different areas, including civil engineering, structural engineering, land planning, rock engineering, soil mechanics, business service systems, power and mechanical installations (lifts and elevators).
The City Line is estimated to be ready at the end of 2011.
