Improvements of infrastructure

Improvements of railways, roads and harbours and the intermodality in the Mid Nordic Corridor is the main focus for Workpackage 3 in NECL II.

• bottlenecks have to be removed through reconstructions and investments.
• improvements of railways, roads and harbours and the intermodality in the corridor.
• development of existing combiterminals or establishing new ones at suitable places in the corridor.

In order to establish the Mid Nordic Corridor as an alternative for goods transport, bottlenecks have to be removed through reconstructions and investments in the transport infrastructure. In addition, the intermodality has to be improved, that is to say the cooperation between the different transport modes through development of existing combiterminals or establishing new ones at suitable places in the corridor. The existing means of transport in the corridor are characterized by an unbalanced rail infrastructure, and limitations in interoperability between the separate countries national rail system. The most crucial missing links is the lack of close connections between sea and rail and intermodal nodes.

In the project we will focus on following activities/subprojects:
• A regional economic study fo the Meråker Line and E14 in Norway
• Improvements of transport infrastructure for preparation of investments on E14 in Sweden.
• Improving connections between railways and ports of Sundsvall, Timrå and Härnösand.
• Studies, investigations and preliminary engineering for main road 18 (in Central Finland).
• Preparatory study for special transports in Ostrobothnia.
• New railway yards and goods rail terminals between Port of Kaskinen and City of Seinäjoki
• Establishing of Goods Delivery Center in Port of Kaskinen and Combiterminals in Seinäjoki, Östersund and Ånge.
