Skanska has signed a contract with the Moynihan Station Development Corporation (MSDC) to complete the first phase of an expansion to New York City’s iconic Penn Station, to create the new Moynihan Station. The contract value for Skanska is USD 148 M, about SEK 1 billion, which will be included in order bookings for Skanska USA Civil for the second quarter 2012.
Skanska will expand the length and width of the existing West End Concourse of Penn Station, which currently serves as a secondary access point to train platforms for Long Island Railroad (LIRR), New Jersey Transit and Amtrak commuters.
