Ramboll team lands design of Stockholm subway expansion

29 Sep 14 Stockholm’s council has awarded a SEK250m (£21m) contract for the investigation and planning of an expansion of the city’s new subway line between Akalla and Barkarby stations.

A team of Ramboll and architectural firms Tyréns and White has been appointed for the assignment, which includes conceptual design, rail and environmental iassessments and production of the construction documents.

The project kicks off immediately with construction to begin in autumn 2016, and the new line is scheduled to open to traffic around 2021.

“We are pleased and proud,” said Ramboll senior director Patrik Schelin. “This is a project in line with our strategy to expand in the community development sector. It is important for us to develop cities where travelling and commuting is easy and convenient. That’s a fundamental condition for stimulating growth in the Stockholm region.”

Tyréns regional manager east Cecilia Granath added: “An important part of this assignment is the coordination of the consultation process and the municipal process to ensure that they run parallel. It is an important task in terms of planning and communication. We will identify and address the major issues in early stages to enable and clarify important decisions that will be of great significance in creating the best opportunities for this important construction project.”

Dag Zerne, architect and vice office manager at White architects said: “We are planning the design of the new subway stations including waiting halls, lobbies and entries. Our work as architects will affect people’s experiences of the public transportation.”
