Sweco awarded additional contracts for Stockholm’s new metro
Sweco has won additional contracts in connection with the expansion of Stockholm’s metro between Fridhemsplan and Älvsjö. The project supports sustainable travel in a growing Stockholm with two important transport hubs where thousands of future passengers will change metro trains daily.
“The continued confidence in Sweco to develop one of Stockholm’s most important infrastructure projects in modern times is highly gratifying. The project is creating efficient travel as well as good, safe environments. We have both the capacity and the ability to harness smart digital tools and innovative methods for solving the complex issues and new conditions required by the assignment,” says Ann-Louise Lökholm Klasson, President of Sweco Sweden.
The new assignment encompasses the preparation of system documents for the new line’s stations at the high-traffic interchanges at Fridhemsplan and Liljeholmen. It entails working on the extension’s entire environment, from passenger spaces to subterranean installations and structures.
Sweco is also continuing development on ongoing assignments won earlier this year, which include work at all of the new line’s station entrances. Since 2015, Sweco has also been working on the seven stations on the Blue Line’s Nacka and Söderort extensions.
Sweco’s assignment starts immediately and is expected to continue for two more years. The new stations are planned to open in 2034. The total order value amounts to about SEK 32 million.
