New contract won in Western Norway


New contract won in Western Norway - Challenging infrastructure project |
Order worth CHF 49 million (NOK 297 million) to Implenia Norge

Dietlikon, 14 November 2012 - Implenia has been contracted by the Norwegian
Public Roads Administration to improve the FV 48 and FV 7 roads in Western
Norway. This hybrid infrastructure project includes building a roundabout and
a pedestrian subway, preparatory work for a new drainage system, and laying a
new pedestrian and cycle path along the FV 7. The improvement work covers a
total of 7.5 kilometres of road. A 2300 metre-long new road tunnel is also
being built. The aim of this work is to take through-traffic away from the
centre of the town of Tysse in Western Norway, to improve routes for
pedestrians and cyclists, and to optimize the road network. Construction work
begins this month, and the roads and tunnel should be ready for use by the end
of 2014. The contract is one of the most important orders that Implenia has
won in the west of the country so far.
