- A part of Sweden’s biggest road and tunnel project
- Road construction through a nature reserve area
- Construction period from 2018 to 2021
Züblin Scandinavia AB, a Swedish subsidiary of publicly listed STRABAG, has been awarded the contract by the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) to build FSE309 Lovö Interchange, a part of the Stockholm Bypass road project. The interchange is situated in a nature reserve with a sensitive historico-cultural background. The project, which has a contract value of SEK 505 million (approx. EUR 49 million), comprises the construction of a new four-lane road with interchanges, pedestrian and cycle paths, rock tunnels, a service tunnel, concrete troughs, etc.
The Lovö Interchange serves as a connection between the Stockholm Bypass tunnel ramps and the surface road network on Ekerö/Lovö islands via the existing Ekerövägen (Road 261).
An important prerequisite for the construction process is that car, pedestrian and bicycle traffic proceed without disturbance throughout the construction period.
”We are very pleased to have again gained the confidence of Trafikverket (Swedish Transport Administration) to build another stage of the Stockholm Bypass and to contribute to and develop the infrastructure in Stockholm. We look forward to good cooperation with the Swedish Transport Administration, so that we can together take the challenge of building in such a sensitive natural and historico-cultural area,” says Pär Land, Managing Director of Züblin Scandinavia AB.
Züblin possesses extensive experience in infrastructure projects and ground engineering. Other projects already realised by Züblin include the Northern Link and the City Line in Stockholm as well as ongoing projects such as the Marieholm Tunnel in Gothenburg, the Akalla Interchange, a part of the Stockholm Bypass and the expansion of the Södertälje Canal and Lock.
