“More frequent, faster and more punctual” rail services will result

The government in Sweden has announced plans to invest SEK 55 billion (€6.5 billion) to patch up its railway network. More than half of this sum will be spent on a line linking Järna in the Stockholm region to the rail network around the city of Linköping to the south-west. The Gothenburg-Borås line – the last link in the Stockholm-Gothenburg line – will also receive money. The rest of the cash will be put towards a rise in the national rail network’s operational budget up to 2025.
“More frequent, faster and more punctual” rail services will result, the government said, benefiting passengers and rail cargo users.
