Read original

NCC Construction Norway, together with Repstad Anlegg, is to construct slightly more than 2 kilometers of new road and tunnel Kristiansand in southern Norge. The total contract is worth approximately SEK 730 million and NCC’s portion amounts to about SEK 510 million. The client is the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.


County Road 456 is the trunk road for a large section of the population of Kristiansand. The new section of road between Kolsdalen and Lumberkrysset is being constructed in order to overcome problems caused by traffic jams.

The road project comprises a total of 2.4 kilometers in a new four-lane road, encompassing a main tunnel with two 1.3 km tunnel tubes, two smaller tunnels, five central islands and a number of small concrete structures.

The project will commence in August and is scheduled to be completed prior to the summer of 2014.

The order will be registered in the third quarter of 2010.
