NCC to construct public transport hub by E18 and Arninge Station
NCC has been commissioned by the Swedish Transport Administration to construct a weather-protected pedestrian walkway over European route E18 and the Roslagsbanan light rail line connecting the new Arninge Station with Arninge retail park. The assignment also includes redevelopment of the Arninge interchange, several new bus stops, bus lanes and water and wastewater works. The contract is valued at SEK 355 million.
Arninge Station will become a public transport hub for the northeastern municipalities in Stockholm County and connect the Roslagsbanan light rail line, and the new Arninge station, with bus rapid transit (BRT) to Stockholm, Norrtälje and Vaxholm and local bus routes to Åkersberga, Vallentuna and Danderyd Hospital. Parking for bicycles and park-and-ride facilities will be build adjacent to the Arninge travel hub.
NCC’s assignment includes the construction of a weather-protected pedestrian walkway over European route E18 and the Roslagsbanan light rail line, including elevators and escalators for easy and safe access to bus stops adjacent to the E18 and local buses as well as to the new Arninge station on the Roslagsbanan light rail line.
“We are looking forward to a productive partnership with the Swedish Transport Administration and will place great emphasis on minimizing disruption during the construction phase. The contract encompasses the construction of new infrastructure, which will benefit public and sustainable transportation, as well as water and wastewater works, and is well aligned with the expertise we possess,” says Ingegerd Simonsson, Regional Manager NCC Infrastructure.
The project will commence with foundation engineering work in August-September 2019 and is expected to be completed in November 2021. The order will be registered in the third quarter of 2019 in the NCC Infrastructure business area.
