From planning to construction

When the Swedish Transport Agency plans and builds roads and railways, we begin with a comprehensive planning process. There we do a measure-selection study and develop a road or rail plan. After that we will prepare a construction document before the project is ready for construction.

We are responsible for planning, building and managing state railways and public roads, especially in rural areas but also for certain urban operators. We are also responsible for the state ferry routes.

There are many who need help in the best way to take care of and develop our road and rail network. Therefore, we cooperate with other government agencies; County councils, municipalities, public transport, associations, regional and intergovernmental bodies, the public and property owners affected by our projects.
