ÅF makes everyday life easier for the people of Stockholm
ÅF is a proud partner to the Swedish Transport Administration in Bypass Stockholm, Sweden’s largest infrastructure project. It’s a new route for the E4 motorway west of Stockholm, built by the Swedish Transport Administration. The new route links the northern and the southern parts of the county while easing the load on existing interlink Essingeleden and the inner city. Travel times will be significantly reduced, making everyday life easier and creating opportunities for further development in a very expansive region. Bypass Stockholm will total 21 kilometers, with 18 kilometers of tunnels. The Swedish Transport Administration plans to start building the large tunnels and interchanges during the spring of 2015. Construction will continue for about 10 years. ÅF has won two of the four main contracts for the project and will be responsible for preparing detailed design documents for the rock tunnels, and the Akalla and Häggvik interchanges. A total of five hundred consultants from seven countries have worked on the project.
