In a public procurement, ÅF, together with Tyréns, was designated as the
technical consulting company in charge of Phase 1 of the East Link project.

The order value is estimated at SEK 100-300 million.

The East Link is an infrastructure project based on substantially improved
communication links on a double-track high-speed railway from Linköping to Järna
and greater Stockholm via Norrköping, Nyköping/Skavsta, and Trosa/Vagnhärad.

ÅF is primarily tasked with handling licensing and planning of Phase 1, based on
both the completed feasibility study and railway study. The project is the first
of its kind in terms of Swedish high-speed trains. ÅF and Tyréns won the
contract thanks to unique skills and breadth in infrastructure projects.

The Transport Administration's decision becomes legally binding 22 June 2014.
