NCC to build railway junction in Malmö for SEK 106 million
NCC Construction Sweden has been commissioned to construct a railway junction in Arlöv, just north of central Malmö. The customer is the Swedish Railway Administration and the order is worth slightly more than SEK 106 million.
Since Swedish trains operate in left-hand traffic and Danish trains in right-hand traffic, trains traveling between the two countries have to switch tracks. Such a switch must be conducted in a grade-separated junction due to the intensive traffic. The grade-separated junction is to be built at the Sege industrial site, between the inner ring road and Lommavägen in Arlöv. The assignment includes landscaping and concrete works, such as a 210-meter-long concrete tunnel for two railway tracks plus an adjacent drainage system totaling 210 meters. The assignment also includes approximately 500 meters of retaining walls and 450 meters of soundproofing shields. Other aspects of the assignment include pump stations, landscaping for the railway track, a new service road and plantation works. The project will commence immediately, in the form of project planning, and production is scheduled to start on April 1, 2004. The tunnel and the landscaping works for the tracks leading up to the tunnel are to be completed around the end of 2006. The entire project, including landscaping works for the railway track above the tunnel, is scheduled for completion by September 2008. NCC estimates that approximately 35-40 employees will be engaged in the project.
