Outlook for Infrastructure Engineering

The track construction market is expected to weaken slightly from 2014. At the same time, low volumes in the sector and the overall situation in the infrastructure engineering sector means that competition for contracts will remain tough. Because of seasonal fluctuations in construction, the company will probably have to lay off employees on a temporary basis during 2015. The business development programme, which started in 2013, is expected to improve the company's profitability. The development programme will cover the period 2013-2015.

Growth in the Swedish track construction market is expected to continue in the next few years. The order book of VR Track Sweden is strong and there should be a substantial improvement in the company's profitability during 2015.
