Better road and rail access
Within the near future major investments will be made to ensure easy access to the port by road and rail.
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 single-track harbor line is now being expanded to double track. Right now, the 3rd stage is being built of double tracks between Eriksberg and Pölsebo. With double tracks across the Göta River, the vulnerability of train traffic has decreased markedly.
Continued expansion of highway 155
The routes leading to the port have been improved considerably in recent years thanks to new and more suitable approach roads and two new junctions – Vädermotet and Ytterhamnsmotet.
Also under construction is a junction leading into the Arendal area, which will be coordinated with the new Sörredsmotet junction. Read more about how road 155 is expanding on the website of Trafikverket.
