Expanded Port Line
The Port Line is the 10 km railway that links the Port of Gothenburg to the rest of the Swedish rail network. The Port Line is one of the most important rail links in Sweden and allows freight from all over Scandinavia to reach the port in Gothenburg. Some 60-70 freight trains use the line every day.
The current single-track line is being expanded into a double-track system, including an extra bridge across the Göta Älv river. The track comprises five stages and it has been decided to expand four of these with completion scheduled for 2019. The double Marieholm Bridge will be completed in 2016.
