Swedish construction company Skanska will expand a 3.2km stretch of the road E45 on parts of the phase Bohus-Nödinge in Western Sweden to a four-lane motorway.

Skanska will also refurbish the Jordfall bridge and construct a new intersection at Bohus with two levels with about 1,000m of new access roads, in addition to erection of noise barriers along the entire stretch of the road.

Work will begin in mid-August 2009 and is scheduled to be complete in December 2012.

The contract totalling SEK 520m (approx. $72.62m) is a part of BanaVäg (RailRoad) in Western Sweden, a cooperation project between the rail and road administrations.
