Short stops on E4 when water is to be delivered

MittSverige Vatten & Avfall and Peab are in full swing with phase one of the major project to expand the water supply network from Bergeforsen, via Midlanda to Torsboda and Söråker.

Torsboda Industrial Park is supplied with water and this increases the capacity of the public water and sewage system for municipal water and sewage, which provides the conditions for construction at Midlanda and more housing in Söråker.

MittSverige Vatten & Avfalls Kent Johansson and Marcus Åkerlund tell in the movie about:

  • that they prepare for water, sewage and industrial water.
  • they are currently unloading explosives after blasting.
  • the pipes are laid at a depth of between two and two and a half meters to prevent them from freezing.
  • that waste water will flow in pipes with self-draining.
  • that drinking water goes in two hundred millimeter pipes.
  • industrial water is taken from the river in five hundred and sixty millimeter pipes.
  • that the E4 will be closed for short stops continuously over the coming weeks when blasting takes place.
  • that consideration and permission was required for many things before they put the bucket in the ground - for example, safety, environment and landowner permission.
  • that the stage from Hässjövägen up to about 120 meters below Rigstavägen is expected to be completed by the autumn.

In the video, you can see machines and vehicles moving rocks, blasting material. The images also show pipes of different dimensions and areas being prepared for blasting.
