The European Union will co-finance with over €14 million from the TEN-T Programme a project to revamp the infrastructure of the Port of Stockholm in Sweden and contribute to the realisation of the "Nordic Triangle" (TEN-T Priority Project 12).
The project, which was selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Annual Programme, concerns the redevelopment of Stockholm's inner city port facilities in the Värta-Frihamnen area. It targets the expansion of Värtahamnen pier to create an efficient, modern and environmentally-friendly facility for both passenger and freight transport. The pier will be extended and renovated, the existing railway line will be upgraded and a new terminal will be built.
Once finalised, the project will boost the long-term efficiency and sustainability of the Port of Stockholm and contribute to eliminate one of the most serious bottlenecks on Priority Project 12. It will also help secure Stockholm's place as an important port in a region with growing transport needs.
