The tunnel is part of the industrial branch line that Ports of Stockholm is constructing to the new freight port. In total four kilometres of rail track is being built, including 270 m that runs through the tunnel.
"The Stockholm Norvik Port is a unique project and our investment in the railway creates the best possible preconditions for our customers to transport goods efficiently and sustainably," saidNicklas Ebersson, Marketing Manager Cargo, Ports of Stockholm.
The Stockholm Norvik Port will open in 2020 and will replace the existing container terminal at Stockholm's Frihamnen Port. The new container terminal will be run by Hutchison Ports. The RoRo section of the port will open the same year. It will be run as part of Ports of Stockholm's own business operations.
