The Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket, has appointed Skanska to convert a 24km stretch of the West Coast Line from single to double tracks.

The project, which runs from Ängelholm station to just south of Maria station in northern Helsingborg, includes 19 new railway bridges and two road bridges. In addition, seven level crossings will be replaced to improve safety and several stations will be rebuilt. New switches, contact lines and signal systems will also be installed as part of the project.

Preparatory work will begin in late summer or autumn 2020 and the new double-track route is expected to come into use during the latter part of 2023. The project is due for completion in May 2024.
