The first shovels have hit the ground for what will be western Sweden’s first Airport City. This will be the location for logistics operations, commercial activities, attractions and retail offerings, businesses and offices, and hotel and conference facilities. Over two million square metres of space is available.
All roads lead to Airport City
The airport city now taking shape is located where all roads come together. Since it is being built adjacent to Göteborg Landvetter Airport, it will be a port to Scandinavia.
High-speed rail between the two biggest cities in western Sweden
Construction is planned for a 60 km-long two-track high-speed railway between Borås and Gothenburg. The Gothenburg-Borås route is also a link to the new main line between Stockholm and Gothenburg via Jönköping.
Quick, convenient and environmentally friendly
The new railway between Gothenburg and Borås will pass through a tunnel under Göteborg Landvetter Airport. It will be easy for passengers to get from an underground station to the departure and arrival halls via a lift or escalator – a great environmentally-friendly alternative for getting to and from the airport.
The rail network throughout the region can be developed
One essential requirement for the new railway between Gothenburg and Borås is the West Link, a new 8 km-long commuter rail link through Gothenburg, largely through tunnels. With the West Link, the rail network throughout the region can be developed. More people will be able to commute more quickly and conveniently with fewer transfers.
1.5 million visitors in the future
Some 1,200,000 people live within 40 minutes of Airport City. That number is expected to grow to 1,750,000 by 2030. And every person is a potential visitor to Airport City, whether for work or leisure.
