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. Since 2014, Sweco and Spanish partner TYPSA, have provided services such as architectural, civil and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) design, as well as visualization images and media of the new stations to be built.
11.5 km Metro Line and Seven Stations
Under the new contract, Sweco and 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 new metro line will connect the existing Kungsträdgården station in downtown Stockholm with the Nacka municipality in the east the city. 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.
