The initial stage of the project will see the construction of the 150km Järna – Linköping, 60km Gothenburg – Borås and 70km Hässleholm – Lund lines. These will form the initial sections of a proposed SKr 230bn ($US 24.4bn), 660km high-speed network that will improve connections in southern Sweden to create additional capacity, reduce inter-city journey times with fast and sustainable transport for both passengers and freight services, and improve international links.
Jacobs will provide technical advice and services across planning, system, design and delivery for the three projects. The high-speed lines are expected to increase capacity and resilience across the network.
“Today, our mainlines are overcrowded, and greater capacity will add to our sustainable transport solutions,” says Trafikverket programme director, Mr Peter Uneklint. “Expanding the railway network will bring Sweden closer together and create new opportunities for people and businesses.”
