The Stockholm City Line contract involves the construction of the entire line, including systems. When the Stockholm City Line is completed in 2017, the track capacity in Stockholm will be doubled.
The order comes from Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration, and is worth €23m (£19.5m).
The Stockholm City Line will run through a tunnel beneath central Stockholm. It will separate the ‘the shuttle serving the suburbs in Stockholm from the other train traffic running through Stockholm city centre.
Strukton’s contract involves the construction of the entire line between the existing stations of Tomteboda and Stockholm-South, including power supply, catenary, signalling and telecommunications, and the installation of fire alarms along the entire stretch. Part of the work will be carried out in a tunnel under Lake Mälaren.
“We are delighted to have won Trafikverket’s confidence and look forward to building the track system for the Citybanan. This is an enormous investment that affects many, and the new line will be a boost for all Stockholm commuters. For us, the project is also interesting because we use new methods of work and will have a broad collaboration with other stakeholders”, said Strukton’s regional manager Johnny Berg.
