Transportation Infrastructure

 

Sweco’s experts design transport systems that enable tomorrow’s cities to cope with a growing population as well as increasing requirements for sustainable transport solutions. Here you can read more about how our experts contribute to a sustainable transformation through our client projects.

In an accessible society, people and goods move safely and efficiently. Modern technology creates good opportunities for a feasible future. Transport infrastructure is a critical function that most of us use daily. At the same time, transport contributes to environmental and climate impact, air pollution and noise. The targets for reducing emissions from road transport will be tightened, while the resilience of railways and the connections between different national systems are expected to be strengthened.

Our experts use combined expertise in technology, architecture and the environment to plan and design pedestrian and cycle paths, roads, bridges, tunnels, ports and rail infrastructure with a well-thought-out priority around safety, accessibility, sustainability and cost efficiency.

Leading position in Europe

Sweco has a leading position in Europe in track and rail design with over 1,200 experts in the field. Client projects range from national trunk lines to growing cities’ public transport networks, often linked to local or national climate goals. Through digitalisation in the form of information coordination, sensor technology and interactive visualisations, we manage large amounts of multidimensional data, which we then apply to the projects to improve traffic flows, reduce emissions and optimise maintenance.

Sweco has been commissioned by the Swedish Transport Administration to plan the new railway that will run between Norra Tuvan and central Skellefteå, a project expected to continue through 2031.

In southern Germany, Sweco has been working with a project to create a local tram network based on existing rail lines. Sweco managed all design and planning work for six new stations in the greater Memmingen area.

Transformation and electrification

Sweco contributes to the complex transition to modern infrastructure for mobility, electrified transport, EV-charging and traffic planning. An infrastructure area that has become increasingly important to transform is shipping. About 80 per cent of world trade is bounded to sea transport and every year more than 400 million ship passengers pass through European ports, which has a significant environmental impact. A rapid transition to alternative fuels, energy storage and shore-side electricity supply is needed to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Ports also need to be future-proofed against rising sea levels as a result of global warming.

Sweco has analysed options for creating plug-in solutions based on existing electricity grid capacity and investment grants from the Norwegian Environment and Climate Agency.
