Approval to New Railway to Port of Gävle
Sweden´s government has approved the construction of a new 2-kilometer-long railway track to port of Gävle/Yilport Gävle. The project, expected to start in November, will include new infrastructure that will be electrified and therefore significantly smarter and” greener”.
This is an important advantage for users of the port. The new and updated railway-connection save significant time and give environmental gains as it with this new infrastructure it will no longer be necessary to switch from electric to diesel locomotives. Further efficiency gains are also expected with this new railway as trains from all directions can go straight to the harbor without today's time-consuming shifting movements in central Gävle.
