Extend the infrastructure – connect Sweden with trains that go on time
The decided national plan for infrastructure 2018–2029 with investments in roads and railways across the country of SEK 700 billion will be completed. New high-speed railways will be completed so that Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and regions and cities along and in connection with the track’s route are better linked with modern and sustainable communications. There will be continued expansion of the railway in northern Sweden and the planning to build the Norrbotnia railway in its entirety will be intensified. The broad funding discussion between seven parliamentary parties must be resumed and constitute the starting point for the continued work on the project. Today’s Eurovignette fee for freight transport should be kept as long as possible. A new environmental management system should be investigated (Added in spring 2019).
A national ticketing system for all public transport throughout Sweden is introduced (Investigation 2020. Introduced 7 from January 1, 2022).
The government must act to make it easier to book a trip abroad by train. The Swedish Transport Administration is commissioned to procure night trains with daily departures to several European cities.
