Skanska has secured an additional assignment for construction of the Fulton Street Transit Center in lower Manhattan in New York City. The contract amount is USD 120 M, approximately SEK 840 M, which has been included in third-quarter order bookings. The customer is the New York City Transit Authority.
The new contract is for pedestrian bridges, platforms and three new entrances at the Fulton Street-Broadway-Nassau subway station. The project also includes some deconstruction work and all types of installations. After the underground work is completed, the street level will also be restored.
