ÅF has secured a large-scale order from Banverket, the authority
responsible for rail transport in Sweden, in conjunction with the
Stockholm City Line rail link.

The consulting contract consists of three extensive technical
assignments: Tomteboda freight yards, the double-track tunnel and new
commuter stations, and a risk and safety management assignment.

ÅF's involvement with regard to the Tomteboda project and the
twin-track tunnel relates to the project engineering of all aspects
of the technical rail installations, including ground survey work,
track, electrics, signalling and telecommunications, SCADA and
channelling as well as technical support up to the time when the
facilities are taken into use.

The value of the order for ÅF's part is estimated to total
approximately SEK 200 million (approx. 22 million euros) up until

The City Link is a two-track rail link with two new stations in a
tunnel extending for some 6 kilometres between the commuter rail
stations of Stockholms Södra south of the city centre and Tomteboda
to the north. The City Link will double rail capacity in and out of
Stockholm and help improve punctuality for trains both within the
city and throughout the Mälaren Valley. At the same time, the new
tunnel will also bring benefits to trains travelling to and from the
rest of the country.
