Mittbanan
Overhead cables on the Meråkerbanan Line
Norway is erecting overhead cables and electrifying the Meråkerbanan Line between Meråker and Störedal through to Trondheim. Once electric trains can serve the line through to Trondheim, rail traffic can connect to the port and rail network. A modern railway promotes regional trade, reduces road traffic, and has a positive impact on the environment.

Overhead cables between Duved and the Norwegian border
We’re electrifying the railway between Duved and the Norwegian border. Railway electrification is a sub-project in Stora Helvetet. A modern railway relieves pressure on our roads, improves freight transport, and encourages more people to travel by train between Norway and Sweden. In the long term, the use of electric trains that can operate all the way to Trondheim has a huge environmental benefit.

New railway bridge over Stora Helvetet
We’ve built a new railway bridge for the Mittbanan Line over the Stora Helvetet ravine. The bridge over the ravine was built in the late 1800s and the railway embankment has subsided in several locations. The line was closed between 2013 and 2015 to allow for the embankments to be reinforced. Thanks to a new bridge over the ravine, trains can operate safely.

Safer railway between Ytterån and Duved
We’re remodelling and removing around 20 railway crossings on the Mittbanan Line between Ytterån and Duved. We’re also building bridges over the railway in two locations in Åre and erecting fencing along the railway. By having fewer unattended railway crossings, the trains can run faster. This will enhance the environment and shorten journey times, which means more people can take the train to and from Åre.

Fewer and safer railway crossings between Sundsvall and Ånge
Many railway crossings between Sundsvall and Stöde are unattended. We’re closing, remodelling, and improving around 50 crossings along the Mittbanan Line between Sundsvall and Ånge. Fewer crossings mean increased capacity and shorter journey times. It also ensures a safer work environment for our train drivers. The closure of crossings will require the construction of replacement roads. A new platform is also being built in Stöde.

New rail connection in Bergsåker
The Ådalsbanan Line is being connected to the Mittbanan Line by way of a new rail connection in Bergsåker. The connecting track means that rail transport from inland areas can go directly from the Mittbanan Line to the Ådalsbanan Line without having to traverse Sundsvall. This new connection makes it easier and more efficient to transport freight by rail between inland areas and the industries located along the coast.

Östersund
Express cycle routes in Östersund
We’re building new express cycle routes to and from Östersund. The express cycle routes are a safe alternative for commuting by bike as the paths are separated from pedestrians and cars. These express routes improve safety for users of electric bikes, cargo bikes, and bike trailers, all of which are becoming increasingly common. Commuting by bike is an environmentally-friendly alternative to commuting by car. Shorter journey times and safer routes encourage more people to cycle to work and school.

Krokom
Planning a railway station in Nälden
We’re exploring the need for a new station on the Mittbanan Line in Nälden, and a new railway plan is being prepared. More train stations mean more people can leave their cars at home and make it easier to commute to work between Krokom and Östersund. This also makes it easier to travel throughout the Jämtland region.

Upgrade of Ånge rail yard
Ånge rail yard has been fully upgraded with new tracks and new points, while the overhead cables have been replaced. The rail yard tracks have been strengthened to withstand an axle load of 25 tonnes, which means that freight trains that are more heavily loaded can operate. We’ve also completed the connection of track 39. This halves loading times of things like timber to be transported out of Ånge. These measures ensure a better flow and reduced loading times.

Start of construction: 2022/23
Expanded port with Sundsvall Logistics Park
We’re expanding the Port of Sundsvall. By expanding the port, we’re creating one of Sweden’s most important and most sustainable transport hubs for increased cargo transport to and from Sundsvall. The project includes a container port, combi-terminal, and logistics park. The Maland and Tunadal railway lines are also being upgraded to enable freight to be shifted off the roads and onto Sweden’s rail network, which benefits the environment considerably. Transport accessibility is currently limited, despite the Port of Sundsvall being one of Sweden’s largest ports for the forestry industry. Thanks to a more efficient transport hub, companies can develop and contribute to sustainable growth throughout the Sundsvall region.
