Sweco has been awarded a new contract worth 22 million euros as part of the ongoing expansion of the Stockholm metro. The new line will connect the existing Kungsträdgården station in downtown Stockholm with the Nacka Municipality in the east of the city.
The client, Region Stockholm, is making one of the largest ever investments in the Stockholm metro network. The new contract follows several other projects that Sweco has carried out for the city’s new metro line since 2014.
Stockholm’s metro network handles over 1.1 million passengers daily and is planned to be expanded significantly as the region is growing rapidly.
11.5 km Metro Line und Seven Stations
Under the new contract, Sweco and Spanish partner TYPSA will be delivering site supervision, works coordination and expert support services for all utilities, the railway and its supporting systems, for the implementation of a 11.5 km long metro line, including seven new stations. The project started in November 2023 and is planned to be completed in 2030.
The tunnels will run through bedrock and underwater under an inlet of the Baltic Sea, with one of its stations located 100 m below ground level.
