More than half of all Swedes live around the blue lines on the map opposite. Also found here are the majority of Sweden’s business, schools and universities. This is the area we call the European Corridor.
The blue lines represent the Europabanan and Götalandsbanan high-speed railway lines. Other trains and forms of transport will connect with these lines.
It is our wish to see these lines built as soon as possible. It will then be easier and much quicker to travel, both within Sweden and abroad.
Approximately 65% of Sweden’s GNP is generated within the European Corridor. A very large proportion of Sweden’s most expansive businesses are located here – along with the majority of the countries jobs.
This area also encompasses the majority of Sweden’s higher education, with 80% of all Swedish university and college students studying within the European Corridor. The corridor is home to approximately 75% of the Swedish population – or 6.8 million people. Within the European Corridor as a whole, the population is 20 million.
The expanded European Corridor will offer Sweden a new and modern traffic system within which all forms of traffic collaborate – with high-speed trains providing the major arteries. Their construction will therefore benefit the entire country.
