The contract is valued at NOK 4.6 billion ($415 million) and will be included in Skanska’s Nordic order bookings for the second quarter of 2023.

The scope of the contract entails the design and construction of a 2.3-kilometer stretch of 2×3 lanes on the E18 motorway, connecting Fornebukrysset and Strand.

Additionally, the project includes the establishment of a new main uninterrupted cycle route spanning the entire section and the construction of a new local access road to Fornebu.

The contract also encompasses the development of the Høvik Tunnel (660 meters) and the Gjønnes Tunnel (440 meters).

Moreover, Skanska will be responsible for implementing changes to the adjacent local road systems, including pedestrian and cycle paths.

The project aims to achieve environmental certification according to the BREEAM Infrastructure standards, specifically targeting the “Excellent” level.

Construction is set to commence in the summer of 2023, with an expected completion date in early 2030.

This contract is part of the extensive E18 Western Corridor project, which involves the construction of a new main highway system connecting Lysaker in Bærum to Drengsrud in Asker municipality.

The new E18 highway aims to replace one of Norway’s busiest road sections plagued by traffic congestion, limited accessibility for public transportation, and significant noise and air pollution challenges.
