NCC to construct tunnel and road in Trondheim for SEK 660 million
NCC Construction Norway is to construct a new section of the E6 freeway in Trondheim on behalf of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. The contract comprises 500 meters of new tunnel and road. The total order value amounts to approximately SEK 660 million.
The project is a part of the Roads Administration’s E6 freeway project between Trondheim and Stjördal. NCC’s contract comprises a new four-lane section of the E6 between Pirbrua and Möllenberg in central Trondheim. The length is approximately 500 meters, of which about 300 meters comprises a concrete tunnel that will be built on a clay foundation. The new tunnel will subsequently be linked to a mountain tunnel, thus forming a 2.5-kilometer tunnel that will reduce the traffic burden and create a better environment in central Trondheim. The Roads Administration has assigned much of the responsibility for how the work is to be conducted to the contractor, which is the first time such a form of procurement has been applied. Project planning will commence immediately. The tunnel and road work will commence in the first quarter of 2010 and is scheduled for completion in June 2013. Order booking will occur in the fourth quarter of 2009.
