Today, the government confirms that the project takes effect.
Construction is set to begin year 2024 and by 2029 to be finalized.
The Stockholm Chamber of Commerce are pleased with the decision.
- The private sector welcomes this initiative of a four-way rail track between Uppsala and Arlanda. It increases the interest of more business establishments and paves the way for Sweden’s largest long-term construction-project in the region. For the capital region to continue its development as the growth engine of Sweden, we need to improve our communications via rail way and roads between Stockholm-Arlanda-Uppsala, Göran Brocknäs, Regional manager of the Chamber in Uppsala county, says.
Göran Brocknäs hopes that the construction-period could be accelerated and that the government must assure full financing for the entire project.
- Along the track, great potential for more businesses and residence to settle exists. However, now the journey begins in all its seriousness to cooperate between politics, officials and the private sector in how the project is to be constructed. We have to have right solutions and we are hoping that the government can show full financing for the project – that is imperative. My hope is that also the implementation-phase can be shortened, because the needs are acute, Göran Bröcknäs says.
