ÅF has, in conjunction with White Architects, won one of the main contracts for
the Swedish Transport Administration's "West Link" (Västlänken) project.

The assignment "Korsvägen - Railway station" will run over a three-year period
and we estimate the value of the project for ÅF to be approximately SEK 75

ÅF will support the Swedish Transport Administration with competence in the
technical fields of geotechnology, rock engineering, civil construction,
hydrogeology, environmental impact assessments and structural engineering.

The West Link Project is a planned 8-kilometre long railway tunnel under central
Gothenburg. In addition to a new Central Station, two new stations will also be
built. The main purpose of the project is to facilitate travel in Gothenburg and
West Sweden. When completed, the link will permit an increase in capacity for
commuter rail traffic, improve accessibility to the city and reduce the
vulnerability of the rail system as a whole.
