The Swedish Transport Administration is planning for a new approximately 60 km double-track railway between the two largest cities in Western Sweden. Three stations are evaluated, out of national interest, Mölndal, Landvetter Airport and Borås.
The railway contributes to faster travel in the West of Sweden and between the city regions, smoother work commuting, more train departures, sustainable travel and increased access to Landvetter Airport. The new railway is a part of a new main line between Gothenburg and Stockholm. For more information go to the project's website, link at end of this article.
Gothenburg−Borås has carried out early dialogues with the supplier market, both Swedish and International suppliers during October-December 2020.
The early dialogues were conducted by Procurement manager Jessica Dosenius, Design manager Maria Hermansson, Production manager Roger Lundahl and Technical manager Emelie Bernsson. The dialogues took place via Skype-meetings due to the current Corona pandemic.
On the project’s website a summary of the early dialogues will be published together with the presentation materials that were shown and talked about during the dialogues. Additional information that was communicated by the project during the dialogues has been added to the presentation.
It is very clear that there is a large interest in the project and the majority of suppliers have Gothenburg-Borås as a priority project that they want to be a part of.
The project will carry out more early dialogues in the future and especially with regards to procurements of contracts for the construction phase. We recommend that you visit the project’s website regularly.
The Swedish Transport Administration’s procurement plan will be updated in the near future with detailed information about the upcoming procurements of railway plans together with environmental impact assessment and preliminary design. The first procurement of railway plan is planned to take place during the summer of 2021.
