For the first time in EFEE Conference history the workshop will include a site visit to the biggest road construction project in Sweden – E4 The Stockholm bypass – Förbifart Stockholm.
E4 The Stockholm bypass – Förbifart Stockholm is a new route for the European highway (E4) past the Swedish capital connecting the southern and northern parts of Stockholm.
This essential new section of Stockholm network is 21 km long with over 18 km being routed underground, to reduce the impact on Stockholm’s natural and cultural environment, requiring a huge amount of drilling and blasting work using the very latest research and technology.
After this superb visit we will have the unique opportunity to discuss the project with the client, contractors and consultants including key areas of the design, environmental impacts, challenges in blasting and much more.
Further information surrounding the project is available by visiting: http://www.trafikverket.se/en/thestockholmbypass
