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 started in 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.
The Stenkumla–Dunsjö, Dunsjö-Jakobshyttan and Jakobshyttan-Degerön sections of Double tracks Hallsberg–Degerön have 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.
