A key element in a city’s attractiveness is the ability of its residents to travel safely and efficiently. Sweco’s infrastructure experts have what it takes to design transport systems that simplify people’s everyday lives. By designing everything from transportation hubs, roads for both cars and bicycles, railways and subways to bridges, tunnels, ports and marinas, we improve accessibility in tomorrow’s communities and cities.
Many of the world’s railways are under such heavy strain that that their maintenance requires highly expert, qualified knowledge and experience. At the same time, several new modern railways are under construction and are designed to handle high-speed trains.
Sweco’s experts have long-standing experience in the field of railways and vast knowledge of track substructures and superstructures, including both the track itself and the switching systems. We analyse, dimension, plan and design various types of track systems for conventional railways and high-speed railways, as well as metros and light rail systems. With the right track geometrics, switching-system structures and substructures, we help ensure safe railway traffic in the long term.
Sweco also possesses wide-ranging knowledge in the field of risk assessment and interoperability (CSM and TSI), and we guide projects with a steady hand from the design phase to final approval. We manage the approval of large-scale infrastructure projects and minor projects such as subways (underpasses).
We focus on creating viable, safe and cost-effective transport solutions as part of the society of the future. We perform everything from planning the re-laying of individual tracks to the design of complex shunting yards and new high-speed railways.
