OHL to upgrade railway line in Sweden in consortium with local company NCC

(28/09/2017) 
The contract was awarded by Trafikverket (Swedish Transport Administration) and amounts to 2,000 million Swedish Kronor (SEK), about 215 million euros. The project involves building two temporary tracks parallel to the current 5 km line, where rail traffic will run during construction.

The contract will result in four tracks instead of the two current ones. This requires building a recess up to six metres deep for 5 of the 8 kilometres of the line, including 400 metres underground near the Akarp station.

The contract also involves the construction of three new stations at Burlöv, Akarp and Hjärup, and four overpasses and two underpasses that cross the route, as well as building three underpasses crossing the E6/E20 motorway and widening it to three lanes in each direction.
