NCC has received a contract from Stockholm Public Transport (SL) to bolster the capacity of the Roslagsbanan light rail line in Sweden.
Under the Skr280m ($31.06m) design-build contract, NCC will construct a 2.1km-long double track between Täby kyrkby and Kragstalund stations.
A double track will enable SL to increase the capacity of Roslagsbanan light rail and increase the frequency of railway operations on the route.
Additionally, it will improve traffic safety as multiple railway crossings will be upgraded with grade separation.
The contract also includes the construction of bridges and installation of advanced support structures.
NCC Infrastructure Civil East regional manager Ingegerd Simonsson said: “NCC has extensive experience of conducting construction work while train services are in operation and we are planning this project to ensure traffic safety for the public in the vicinity and that the work environment is safe for our employees.”
