Aims and intentions
Construction of an intermodal terminal in Östersund area, Sweden, is a priority for the municipality and the region. The terminal must be able to offer the market an opportunity for transporting goods on alternative road and rail, to both efficiency and environmentally sound transportation. The establishment of an intermodal terminal is often a major financial investment. It is also difficult to predict the future market potential. Therefore a public commitment both financially and practically is necessary. The public interest in encouraging combined transport is large, especially given the potential of opening for business development in general, but also because transports can be more environmentally friendly,
when goods go on rail instead of road.
The investigations for the Lugnvik option have been part of the EU project North East Cargo Link, NECL II. Östersund has been considered a strategic site for an intermodal terminal in the context of NECL.
The report includes following parts:
- Financing the terminal
- Two possible locations
- Studies of the market and needs
- Technical surveys etc made by consultants
- Overall assessment of the examined site at the former SJ -engineering building
- Alternative site study
- Current situation, May 2012 and future work and Benefits of the work done within the project
