Ersmark Tunnel: Important Rail Link in Northern Sweden

The Swedish Transport Authority has awarded Implenia the contract for planning and building the Ersmark Tunnel in northern Sweden.

The Swedish Transport Authority has awarded Implenia the contract for planning and building the Ersmark Tunnel in northern Sweden. The project comprises a 1.6 km long tunnel between Fäboberget and Ersmarksberget, plus a service tunnel, various concrete structures, water and wastewater systems and drainage mats. Access roads and staging areas are also being built. Work begins in May 2024 and will take about two years to complete.

The Ersmark Tunnel is part of the Norrbotnia Line, a 270 km new railway between Umeå and Luleå that will enable faster, safer and more sustainable travel and transport. The new railway line will cut travel times significantly and improve the connection of a densely populated area of Sweden to the rest of Europe. This will boost the region’s social development and economic competitiveness.
