Sweco is part of an alliance that has been contracted to provide design services in a project for the first tramway to be established in the City of Turku in Finland, including the design of 19 new stations. The value of Sweco's part of the project is approximately EUR 6 million. The new tramway will extend for approximately 12 kilometres with 19 stops from the harbour via the city centre to the Varissuo area.

The tramway will increase the capacity of Turku's public transport, accelerate the city's growth and support the achievement of the city's climate goals. The development phase will start in April 2024 and based on a preliminary estimation, construction will take place between 2026 and 2031. Passenger traffic is expected to start in the early 2030s.

The large-scale project will be implemented through an alliance model consisting of Sweco, GRK Suomi, Ramboll Finland and NRC Group Finland.
