Swedish engineer Sweco has been chosen to design stations and investigate environmental impact for an extension of the city’s metro. The project will include the districts of Fridhemsplan and Älvsjö in the west of the Swedish capital.
Sweco stands to receive €6m for investigating and assessing the impact of surface and ground during the construction. It will also evaluate societal values such as safety, sustainability and security.
Ann-Louise Lökholm Klasson, Sweco’s president, said: “The fact that Sweco has been entrusted with managing these assignments attests to our specialised expertise and experience of metro projects.
“We look forward to adding to Stockholm’s future city landscape and increased use of public transport with focus on the environment and sustainability.”
Sweco has already began work on the project, which is due to conclude in 2024.
