A Bam NCC joint venture has won a €385M (£340M) contract to build a phase of Sweden’s West Link project.

The Swedish Transport Administration has selected Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau, the German tunnelling specialist arm of Royal Bam Group, in joint venture with NCC Sverige to build the Korsvägen phase of the project in Gothenburg. The phase, which includes a 3.2km tunnel and a new underground station, is expected to take six years to build.

Swedish Transport Administration West Link project manager Bo Larsson said: “During the tender process, we placed great emphasis on the contractor’s plans for carrying out the work, and the proposals have been assessed by a panel. The bids have been evaluated on the basis of both price and proposals for implementation.”

The West Link project is an 8km long double track railway, including a 6km railway tunnel under the city, which will connect commuter rail services to city centre routes. Three new underground stations will be built in total and the project will double capacity at Gothenburg Central Station when services start in 2026.
