Next-gen high speed rail in Sweden

We're helping Sweden develop its next generation high-speed rail network, including a connection between Gothenburg-Borås.The aim is to deliver better journey times and accessibility, while minimising the impact on the environment or nearby inhabitants.

“This project is fully in line with Ramboll’s 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.

Mission: find out location and connectivity of the tracks

Ramboll’s assignment is to investigate a suitable rail corridor to deliver better journey times and accessibility, while minimising the impact on the environment or nearby inhabitants.

Faster and more sustainable travel

“It is an incredibly important and exciting project, both regionally and nationally for Sweden. The new railway will simplify everyday life for many people and make it possible to travel faster and more sustainably. Not only will the two largest cities in western Sweden be better linked, but the connection to Gothenburg Landvetter Airport will be vastly improved,” says Susanna Ohlin, business area manager at Ramboll Sweden.

Communication, innovation, and sustainability are as important as the technical expertise to create a successful solution.

Our role investigating locations in the initial part of this project will continue for about 2.5 years. Then, the Swedish Transport Administration can apply for permission to build the railroad from the Swedish government.
