Rail bridge in Gothenburg Port opens

Tags: , , , ,


A new rail bridge over the Göta Älv River – the South Marieholm Bridge – opened to traffic on 31 March. The new double-track bridge will result in a long-awaited expansion of rail capacity to and from the largest cargo port in the Nordic region.

“The new South Marieholm Bridge is vitally important for freight transport to the port. Freight capacity will be increased significantly and we can continue the positive, sustainable development process that is already under way with a growing volume of rail-borne freight. It will be a substantial boost to Swedish imports and exports,” said Magnus Kårestedt, CEO, Gothenburg Port Authorty.

The bridge, which runs alongside the existing Marieholm Bridge, is part of the 10 km Port Line – the rail track that links the Port of Gothenburg to the country’s main line network. The Port Line carries around 70 freight trains each day. Traffic disruptions can have major repercussions for industry, not only in western Sweden but throughout the whole country.
