Skanska builds railway in Sundsvall, Sweden, for SEK 320M
Skanska has signed an agreement with the Swedish Transport Administration to construct a new railway passing station south of Sundsvall, Sweden. The contract is worth about SEK 320 million, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the first quarter of 2017.
