Skanska has signed a contract with Vestland County Council for the construction of a new tunnel in Kvinnherad municipality, Norway.

The contract, worth NOK 335M (c.£29m), will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the fourth quarter 2021.

The aim of the Fv. 500 Folgefonntunnelen-Årsnes project is landslide protection of the road between the Folgefonn tunnel and Årsnes.

It includes construction of 1,400 meters of tunnel and improvements on parts of the road section.

The project is being carried out with early contractor involvement; during the last year, Skanska says it has developed the project in close collaboration with Vestland County Council.

Construction start is October 2021, with the project set to be delivered in early 2024.

Skanska is one of the largest construction- and project-development companies in Scandinavia.
