Implenia has won a CHF80M (£62.3M) contract to build a bus terminal inside a hill in Stockholm.
The new bus terminal will consist of three caverns up to 24m high, built inside the Katarinaberget Hill
Construction will require blasting around 270,000m³ of rock from inside the hill, with extensive excavation work including ramp tunnels, connecting shafts and drainage tunnels.
Construction begins this month and Implenia’s work should be completed by June 2021. The interior fit-out will then follow, and the bus station will open in 2023.
“The new bus terminal will be at the heart of local public transport between the centre of Stockholm and the municipalities of Nacka and Värmdö,” says Implenia Sverige CEO Fredrik Björckebaum.
“We won the contract for this ambitious infrastructure project thanks to our expertise and range of services. We look forward to working closely with the City of Stockholm.”
When complete the new bus terminal will be part of the “Slussen SN 91” project - a fundamental redesign of the Slussen central transport hub.
