Case: Tampere tramline
The City of Tampere has selected Tralli, a consortium comprising of YIT, VR Track and Pöyry, to carry out the light rail project in Tampere, Finland. The project is to be carried out employing the alliance model, whereby the client, engineers and contractors work jointly in the execution. The cost estimate for the project is approximately EUR 250 million.
The development phase of the project will begin in July 2015. During the development phase, the plans for the project will be developed and the target cost level established. After the development phase, separate decisions will be made on the start of the implementation phase during which YIT and VR Track will be in charge of the construction.
If the implementation phase is started, the light rail system is to be completed in two parts, in 2019 and 2023.
In an alliance project, all parties have a vested interest in ensuring the success of the project and are fully committed to providing the project with its best infrastructure engineering expertise.
