The stations and the tunnel

The West Link gives Gothenburg three new underground stations situated in central locations. The railway tunnel is six kilometers and goes through both rock and soil beneath the city.

The West Link is an eight kilometer long double track railway, including a six kilometer railway tunnel, underneath the city of Gothenburg. With the West Link, Gothenburg central will acquire a new underground station in the northern  part of the Nils Ericson Terminal. Two completely new stations will also be available at Haga and Korsvägen. The Railway Study demonstrates that this alternative best fulfils the project´s primary objective of contributing to sustainable growth in both Gothenburg region and the country as a whole.

The West Link will give a total of 100 000 residents and 130 000 workers walking or biking distance to a commuter station in central Gothenburg.
