Veidekke Entreprenad has been awarded a new construction contract in conjunction
with rehabilitation of the Lidingöbanen tram line outside Stockholm. The
principal is Trafikförvaltningen, and the contract is worth approximately SEK
200 million excl. VAT.
Lidingöbanen is a 9 km tram line from Torsvik to Gåshaga Brygge. It is to be
upgraded for new cars and greater capacity, and will be linked to Stockholm's
remaining network. Veidekke is to build a new double track on parts of the line,
rebuild and move several stations and undertake a number of other construction
tasks and groundwork.
"In late February Veidekke was awarded a contract for ground and concrete work
for a new tram depot at Lidingö worth SEK 150 million. We are obviously very
satisfied on winning a new contract for Trafikförvaltningen, and
view this as
confirmation that our collaborative model is preferred. We look forward to
contributing in an important project that simplifies and enhances travel for
those using public transport," says Project Manager Anders Bergsten with
Veidekke Entreprenad Anläggning Öst.
Construction will start in August, test runs will start in September 2014 and
the track will be put into operation from December 2014.
