The Gothenburg–Borås Project
Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration, plans to build a new approximately 60 km long double track railway for high-speed trains and fast regional trains between Gothenburg and Borås.
Gothenburg–Borås is one of the links in a new railway network between Stockholm and Gothenburg/Malmö. The new railway will create a rail connection to Göteborg Landvetter Airport and link the region's two largest cities closer together. Gothenburg–Borås is a 60 km long double track railway for high-speed with a top speed of 250 km per hour. With the new network comes an increase in accessibility meaning both people and businesses will be brought closer together.

The Swedish Transport Administration’s procurement plan will be updated in the beginning of 2021 with detailed information about the upcoming procurements of railway plans together with environmental impact assessment and preliminary design. The first procurement of railway is planned to take place during the summer of 2021.
