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.
