Issue 5 2016 / 6 September 2016 /

Trafikverket – the Swedish Transport Administration – is responsible for long-term planning of all types of traffic for the country’s transport system, as well as for building, operating and maintaining public roads and railways. According to Trafikverket’s National Plan, €52.2 billion will be invested in the transport system up to 2025 and in order to raise the level of competition in its procurement efforts, the Administration endeavours to attract tenders from a greater number of inter national suppliers for its projects. In an interview for European Railway Review, Camilla Ahston – Trafikverket’s Senior Inter national Strategist – reveals that efforts to attract new international suppliers are beginning to yield good results.
