NCC Construction Sweden has been commissioned to expand the E45 between Tingberg and Glässnäs into a four-lane highway. This road section is included in the highway expansion program between Gothenburg and Trollhättan.


The client is BanaVäg i Väst through the Swedish Transport Administration and the order is valued at approximately SEK 450 million. The stretch of highway is 9.3 kilometers long and is located in the Alvhem – Kärra section. A four-lane highway, with corresponding traffic interchanges and bridge structures, will be built.
