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 high speed 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 high speed railway with a top speed of 250 km per hour. When the new main line is completed, you’ll be able to travel between Stockholm and Gothenburg in a significantly shorter amount of time than today’s just over three hours. With the new network comes an increase in accessibility meaning both people and businesses will be brought closer together.
