We are expanding the freight line through Hallsberg to double track.
What is going to be built?
This expansion will connect to the existing double track going northwards towards Örebro and the future double track that will go southwards towards Mjölby. We are also building a new track just next to the existing track between the marshalling yard and the Western Main Line. We have move both the Western Main Line and Västra Storgatan a few metres along a short stretch in order to have enough space for the new track.
What's happening now?
Construction started in 2017. One track on the Western Main Line is closed and will open again in December 2019. We are also undertaking noise protection measures by changing windows and building acoustic walls and noise barriers.
