Region Stockholm, Förvaltning för utbyggd tunnelbana – the state-owned company responsible for Stockholm’s subway infrastructure, awarded Implenia the EUR95.92 million (SEK1bn) contract to build the connecting tunnel to the expanded metro depot in Stockholm, Högdalen.  

The project consists of building the required infrastructure to connect the expanded depot to the existing metro track Farstagrenen. A new concrete tunnel and trough will be planned and built at the connection point to Farstagrenen. The rock tunnel consists of approximately 2000 m of track tunnel and a 500 m long underground parking area for trains. The tunnel is being built in a densely populated urban area and close to other railway tracks using blasting technology. Implenia will also equip the tunnel with the required installations for electrical and telecommunication systems, control systems, ventilation and fire sprinklers. Visit https://implenia.com/.  22/22.
