French Ambassador Mr Jacques Lapouge visits SYSTRA teams in Sweden
Mr Jacques Lapouge, Ambassador of France to Sweden, recently visited the Gothenburg-based SYSTRA teams, working on the Ostlänken high speed railway line, accompanied by the Honorary Consul of France in Gothenburg and the Regional Economic Department of the French Embassy.
Ostlänken project, with its 150 km, is the first stretch of the high speed network connecting Sweden’s three largest cities: Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.
Trafikverket, the Swedish transport infrastructure manager expects the line to become operational in 2028. As part of a consortium, SYSTRA is responsible for the design of the 65 km “Ostlänken 3” section between Stavsjö and Sillekrog via Nyköping.
The project teams, located in the offices of our partner COWI in Gothenburg, are working closely with Trafikverket on the first public consultations.
