transport An Italian company sued the Swedish Transportation Administration for 80 million euros, corresponding to 836 million Swedish crowns, in a court in Italy, reports Dagens Nyheter.
The company, Vianini Lavori, was bought by the Swedish Transport Administration to handle the construction of the tunnel in Lovön, in the municipality of Ekerö, part of the Förbifart Stockholm project.
However, after repeated problems, mainly related to deficiencies in the working environment, the Swedish Transport Administration broke the contract in mid-March.
On Tuesday, the Swedish Transport Authority received a request for EUR 80 million from Vianini Lavori.
Since we are going to respond to the requirement, it is difficult to have an exact idea of the moment, but we will probably contest it, says Advocate Charlotta Lindmark, chief lawyer for the Swedish Transport Administration.
According to Lindmark, Vianini Lavori justified the climate with the view that the actions of the Swedish Transport Administration damaged the reputation of the company.
The Lovön tunnel building, which began in 2016, was voted "worst construction" this year by the specialized magazine Construction Worker.
