Implenia has won a major contract in Sweden for the twin-track expansion of the railway line between Varberg and Hamra on the country’s west coast. The order is worth approximately SEK 3.5 billion (around CHF 355 million). In summer 2018, Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration, awarded the Group a commission worth approximately SEK 200 million for the initial planning and preparation of this infrastructure project.

Thanks to Implenia’s early involvement and the collaborative contract structure, the company was able to optimise planning, preparation and construction methods in close partnership with the customer. This has put the Group in an excellent position to execute the second phase of the project and the contract for the detailed planning and construction work.

This work includes the planning and construction of a 2.8 kilometre conventional tunnel, a 450 metre cut-and-cover tunnel, a 1.3-kilometre cutting, several bridges, a new railway station and a total of 2.7 kilometres of track, plus a freight train station. The building work will take around six years, during which time the railway line will continue to operate. From 2024, trains should be running on the new tracks beneath Varberg’s city centre.

In the course of the work, Implenia will be relying on the know-how of its experts in Sweden and its tunnelling specialists. Collaboration between Implenia’s different divisions has been improved by the Group’s new organisational structure, and Trafikverket will be supplied with all the capabilities required for this major project – from planning and preparation to execution – from a single source.
