Trafikverket's productivity work – large investments require smart businesses
Infrastructure costs account for a large part of the state budget. According to The Swedish Transport Administration’s national plan 799 Swedish crowns is to be invested in the transport system up to 2033.
East Link will announce two contracts, estimated sum is 1,5 billion SEK
In the end of the year the East Link will announce two contracts in the most northern part, Gerstaberg.
The main project includes railway works and multiple bridges. One of the bridges will be a fly-over bridge over the existing Main Line, see picture below. The project will build a 3 km long new train connection according to detail design. The work also includes cutting and embankment.
The procurement of the main contract will start around October this year with a prequalification of a small number of companies that will be invited to tender in December. Estimated contract is 1, 5 billion SEK.
The other contract, for power supply, will include detailed design and built for new construction to connect the East Link's new overhead contact lines with existing overhead contact lines on the Western Main Line. The procurement of the project for power supply will start in the end of the year. Estimated contract is 300 million SEK.
In January 2023, the Swedish Transport Administration cancelled the contract with the previous contractor for the project.
Project Haga within the West Link Project is being procured again, now in five parts
During the spring, intensive work has been going on to develop how the project is to be procured again. The project is now divided into five parts. There are four construction contracts, of which prequalification is ongoing for the Rosenlund sub-project.
At the end comes an installation contract that runs through the entire project.
The division is made, among other things, because there are different conditions in each part and the Swedish Transport Administration is looking for the right contractor to solve the specific challenges.
The sub-projects Vasastan and Otterhällan are performance contracts in rock that will be procured in 2023.
After these comes the Stora Hamnkanalen sub-project, which is a slightly smaller contract where a concrete tunnel in clay is to be built.
The procurements will take place continuously during 2023 and 2024. For more information and current times for each business opportunity for the West Link Project, see our procurement plan.
The ”Vändspår Lerum” project
Background and objective
The project is one of Trafikverket’s (Swedish Transport Administration’s) measures on the Gothenburg–Skövde line to increase capacity. The goal is to enable more trains to operate the line, especially during times of peak traffic hours to increase operational reliability.
The objective of the project Vändspår Lerum (”Turnback track Lerum”) is to enable long-distance trains to pass stationary commuter trains and to allow commuter trains to reverse direction without crossing the track carrying through trains.
Scope of work
The project comprises rebuilding of Lerum station (track, electricity, signal, tele, communication and ground) to a four-track station with a new fourth track between the motorway E20 and the existing track 3. In connection with the rebuilding of the station, exchange of switchgears to switchgear 95 and re-definition of station area boundaries will be performed. Catenary lines will be rebuilt completely and prepared for AT-system. Extensive noise reduction measures (noise barriers close to the railway) are also included in the project.
The implementation of the contract work is complex in an urban environment close to a highly trafficked railway and motorway. Hence, the project is conducting investigations as a risk mitigation measure prior to the start of the procurement contractor phase.
