In mid-March, after repeated problems, the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) decided to terminate its contract with one of its primary suppliers for the construction of a tunnel as part of the Stockholm Bypass (Förbifarten Stockholm) project.
Vianini Lavori, which with a second Italian firm won the contract to build a tunnel under the island of Lovön, has since filed a lawsuit in an Italian court, claiming damages of EUR 80 million from the Swedish authority over the contract’s termination.
The Transport Administration, which was informed of the lawsuit on Tuesday, is now in talks with the Office of the Chancellor of Justice to decide how to handle the matter.
