The planning process used by Major Projects is not always easy to understand. It is a long process in which we need to go through many different stages before reaching the start of the construction phase.
The West Link is a big project and big projects require a lot of planning. The project is run in line with the statutory planning process. It is a long and complex process, where planning gradually becomes increasingly detailed and many steps need to be reviewed before work can start on the construction site. It is not only the Swedish Transport Administration that is involved in the process. The issue is also dealt with in different ways by the County Administrative Board, the City of Gothenburg and the Land and Environment Court.
The process is not obvoius and easy to understan. With this article we want to give an insight into everyday life and work in the project at the moment, by making stops at various places in the project organisation.
