Aggregates

Construction of the West Link will give rise to a surplus of both rock and earth/clay requiring removal from the sites. In the summer, we signed agreements for selling the rock aggregates and procured recipients for some of the earth and clay aggregates.

The surplus of rock aggregates and earth/clay left over from the West Link Project and the neighbouring project Olskroken Grade-Separated Junction can be divided into five parts. One of these is rock aggregates. The remaining four are earth and clay aggregates that are classified according to four levels based on how polluted they are.

We have sold the rock aggregates, which thus become a revenue for the project. Agreements for the sale were signed in the summer. We have also procured recipients for some of the earth and clay aggregates, as described below.

The work to find the best possible reception sites for the remaining earth and clay aggregates will continue until the start of construction. Above all, it is the purest classification of earth and clay aggregates (under KM) that we still work with. For these aggregates, we have conducted a procurement that partially covering our needs. However, we expect to conduct further procurements ahead of construction start and are also looking at other forms of agreements with interested parties regarding these aggregates.

Quantities

In total, the quantity of aggregates requiring removal from the sites is calculated to amount to:

  • Approximately 1 710 000 theoretical solid cubic metres of rock, agreements signed. 
  • Approximately 2 090 000 cubic metres of earth and clay aggregates See below for status and distribution
    • Approximately 1 795 000 cubic metres of earth and clay aggregates under KM work in progress, agreements exist for some of the aggregates.
    • Approximately 200 000 cubic metres of earth and clay aggregates between KM and MKM agreements signed.
    • Approximately 90 000 cubic metres of earth and clay aggregates between MKM and FA agreements signed.
    • Approximately 5 000 cubic metres of earth and clay aggregates FA, agreements signed.
