Sweden proposes the 2026-2037 National Infrastructure Plan

The Sweden Transport Administration (Trafikverket) presented to the Government some proposals related to interventions on the road and railway networks listed in the 2026-2037 National Infrastructure Plan. The proposed Economic Framework envisages investments for 959 billion SEK (84.2 billion EUR). The framework includes 315 billion SEK investments (roughly 27.6 billion EUR) for road maintenance works and 222 billion SEK (approximately 19.5 billion EUR) for railway maintenance works, 20 billion of which are intended for a new signalling system and 418 billion SEK (approximately 36.7 billion EUR) to develop previously-launched projects. According to the forecasts for 2040, car travel will increase by about 25% and train one by 50% due to economic and population growth. The Swedish administration focused the investments in maintenance works on the rationalisation and upgrading of existing assets with a specific interest in sustainable mobility for commuters and freight transport. The designs and projects submitted concern the introduction of a new rail signalling system, originally due for 2070 but anticipated in 2040; the works to complete the eastern Järna-Linköping rail connection; and the design phase for the realisation of the new Göteborg-Borås and Lund-Hässleholm rail routes.
