We are expanding the freight line through Hallsberg to double track.
What is going to be built?
This expansion connects to the existing double track going northwards towards Örebro and the future double track that will go southwards towards Mjölby. We have also built a new track just next to the existing track between the marshalling yard and the Western Main Line.
Construction started in 2017. Both tracks on the Western Main Line are open. Both tracks on the freight line through Bergslagen opened in November 2020.
What's happening now?
In spring 2022, we will build four new turnouts on the Western Main Line and the freight line through Bergslagen.
We are undertaking noise protection measures by changing windows and building acoustic walls and noise barriers.
