The UNB10 construction contract comprises the railway’s superstructure and all the electrotechnical systems except the station electronics for the entire section. In addition, conduits, technical structures and completion of evacuation tunnel and roads around technical structures are included in the construction contract.

GSM-R, MIT and emergency network (TETRA) will be installed in the tunnel. Antenna masts will be built for GSM-R and external actors at some of the technical structures. Provisions for commercial mobile coverage and GSM-R will be made in the evacuation tunnels. This will be built mainly by framework agreement contractors and is not included in the EPC contract.

For 50 Hz power, a longitudinal 22kV system will be built with a new supply point from the local power plant.

System 25 will be used as the overhead contact line system throughout the section. AT transformers will be placed at Skoppum and the end of the section at Barkåker.

The permanent signal and interlocking system is based on ERTMS, which will be designed and built by a different contractor.
