NCC wins contract to build Hagastaden in Sweden

WCN Editorial Team 24 Feb 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

NCC has secured a contract from Region Stockholm’s Administration for Extended Metro to construct the Hagastaden station on the new subway line to Arenastaden.

This contract carries an estimated value of around SEK1.2bn ($140m).

NCC is tasked to construct the new Hagastaden subway station in central Stockholm.

The subway station will be surrounded by apartment blocks, Karolinska University Hospital, the Gustaf Vasa church, offices and other urban developments.

NCC has undertaken several similar projects in the past, such as the new Stockholm City commuter train station and the Norsborg Depot.

NCC Infrastructure business area manager Kenneth Nilsson said: “The project suits NCC. We have the capacity to construct complex infrastructure in inner city environments that are logistically challenging and where considerable attention has to be paid to the public, ongoing operations and traffic.

“We look forward, in cooperation with Region Stockholm’s Administration for Extended Metro, to expanding the subway system to make it easier and quicker to travel between different city districts in an evolving Stockholm.”

Under the new assignment, NCC will build four entrances - one in Karolinska University Hospital, one in the new square outside the hospital, one facing the Karolinska Institute and one by Torsplan.

Furthermore, two ticket halls will be constructed - one by Torsplan, and the other, by Karolinska University Hospital.

NCC will also construct an escalator shaft, an adjacent service tunnel and track tunnels that will connect with the Green Line at Odenplan.

The work will be carried out within the framework of the CEEQUAL sustainability system.

Construction will begin by autumn.

The new line is slated to open for service in 2028.

The design and build contract value will be recorded in the first quarter of 2021 in the Infrastructure business area.

The construction contract will be performed in collaboration with NCC Building Sweden.
