Sweden is developing its next generation of high-speed rail network and the section between Gothenburg-Borås will become part of the future route Stockholm - Gothenburg. The work will start immediately will go on for approximately 2.5 years before the route investigation is completed and the Swedish Transport Administration can seek permission from the government.

“This is an assignment fully in line with Ramboll values and our desire to transform Sweden to a sustainable society. That’s why I am particularly proud of this assignment” says Anna Forslund, client director at Ramboll.

Communication, innovation, and sustainability will be as important parts as the technical expertise when solving the task. Ramboll won the assignment due to our experience with stakeholder engagement, technical know-how and strong team, combining local and the global Rail Systems division competences.

The route that delivers the most benefits

- Our assignment is to investigate a suitable corridor for the tracks that will deliver better journey times and accessibility whilst minimizing the impact on the environment and disruption for the local inhabitants. We always take a holistic approach, learn from previous assessments and take a new perspective. We will benefit from our work on the Ostlanken rail link that will go through Linköping and exchange experiences from the two projects. The result will be increased capacity for the railways, better and faster passenger transportation and a positive contribution to the regional development,” says Anna Forslund.
