’s Swedish subsidiary Züblin Scandinavia will carry out a €49 million contract to construct a major interchange in Stockholm. The FSE309 Lovö interchange forms part of the massive Stockholm Bypass project, intended to divert traffic away from the city centre and cut congestion and urban pollution. Included in the project are a new connecting road with four lanes, tunnel sections, drainage systems and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. The Lovö interchange connects the bypass to the existing Road 261 on Lovö Island and Ekerö Island.
The contract was awarded by the Swedish Traffic Administration (Trafikverket). A key stipulation of the work is that vehicle traffic as well as use by pedestrians and cyclists should not be affected adversely during the construction phase. Another important factor is that the site is located in a nature reserve so the work will have to conform to the strict Swedish environmental legislation.
