Swedish construction firm NCC has won a contract worth SEK900m ($92.8m) from Hordaland County Council in Norway to build a new section of the Bergen Light Rail.

As per the contract, NCC will be responsible for the construction of the D14 Mindemyren segment of the Bergen Light Rail line.

Bybanen Utbygging project manager Roger Skoglie said: “NCC has provided a detailed description of how it is planning to implement the project, and we feel confident that NCC will deliver added value in key areas of the project.

“One of these is to ensure the sustainable development of the Bergen Light Rail project.”

Bybanen Utbygging is a department of Hordaland County Council.

The line extends from Kronstad in the north to Kristianborg in the south. The length of the segment is 1,500m.

NCC will also be responsible for replacement of current infrastructure, creating a project-design for the Bergen Light Rail track and building roads.

NCC infrastructure business area manager Kenneth Nilsson said: “This will be NCC’s eleventh project on the light rail line since 2008 and we look forward to a close collaboration with Bybanen Utbygging.”

The project is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2022.

In January, NCC received a contract from Stockholm Public Transport (SL) to bolster the capacity of the Roslagsbanan light rail line in Sweden.
