Hallsberg–Stenkumla co-financed by EU
Double tracks Hallsberg−Stenkumla, a part of Double tracks Hallsberg–Degerön, is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
Construction is planned to start 2023. EU is co-financing the project with a sum of 8 964 000 euro. The Swedish Transport Administration has coordinated the application process in Sweden, and it is the government that decides which projects to recieve co-financing from the CEF. Only projects that are fully financed in the National Transportation System Plan can apply and get co-financing.
Increased accessibility to Europe
The co-financing contributes to the goals to increase capacity and thereby eliminate bottlenecks and increase accessibility along the route as well as in the The Scandinavian–Mediterranean Corridor.
Previously, the Stenkumla–Dunsjö section of Double tracks Hallsberg–Degerön has also received co-financing from the CEF.
CEF is the EU support system for contributing to the implementation of the TEN-T (Trans-European Transport Network) guidelines.
