We are now starting the procurement for preparatory works

We will do work to prepare the city prior to the construction of the West Link and Olskroken Project. Rerouting the underground pipe systems is part of the preparatory works, and we now invite contractors to submit a tender for this procurement.

In order to construct the West Link and the adjoining Project Olskroken as smoothly as possible, we need to do some preparatory work before the start of construction in 2018. For example, we need to reroute underground electricity and water pipe systems to make room for the infrastructure constructions. This work will be made at various locations along the West Link and in Olskroken in consultation with owners of the ground and pipe systems.

– We now invite the contractors to submit a tender for the procurement of rerouting underground pipe systems prior to the construction of the West Link and Olskroken Project. The work is divided into three stages or areas, and the first procurement is about the area between Olskroken and the Residence, says Ida Bremer, purchaser in the West Link Project.

The second stage for the rerouting of pipes covers the area between the Residence and the Gothenburg School of Business Economics and Law, and the third stage covers the area between the school and Almedal. According to the preliminary timetable the preparatory work will start in the fall of 2015.
