Strabag’s Swedish subsidiary Züblin Scandinavia has been appointed by Swedish transport administration Trafikvert to undertake work on the Lovö Interchange, which includes major tunnelling work.
The SEK505M (£43M) contract for part of the Stockholm Bypass involves tunnelling through rock and major ground improvement work to create a new four lane road and interchanges.
The Lovö Interchange serves as a connection between the Stockholm Bypass tunnel ramps and the surface road network on Ekerö/Lovö islands.
The 3.9km section of new road will call for 175m of tunnelling through rock, plus 100m of cut and cover tunnelling, as well as 100,000 linear metres of lime cement columns for ground stabilisation.
“We are very pleased to have again gained the confidence of Trafikverket to build another stage of the Stockholm Bypass and to contribute to and develop the infrastructure in Stockholm,” said Züblin Scandinavia managing director Pär Land.
Strabag is also working on the €45M (£40M) contract to build the Akalla motorway tunnel on the Stockholm Bypass
