Skanska to expand Harbor line at Hisingen, Gothenburg, Sweden, for about SEK 1.3 billion
Skanska has signed an agreement with Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration, to build double lanes for the freight railway Hamnbanan, the Eriksberg-Pölsebo stage, in Gothenburg, Sweden. The contract is worth about SEK 1.3 billion, which will be included in the order bookings for Skanska Sweden for the third quarter of 2019.
The extension is 1,900 meters, of which 1,100 meters will be a tunnel, north of the existing single track. The project also includes construction of temporary tracks for traffic diversion, demolition of an existing facility including a bridge, new pedestrian and cycle paths, new football field, as well as a new clubhouse for Eriksbergs IF.
Construction is scheduled for fall 2019 and the entire project will be completed in 2024.
