Transportation Agency Merger Proposed
A new study has proposed merging the public agencies responsible for Sweden’s roads and railroads, along with sections of other authorities.
The proposal would see the National Road Administration and the Swedish Rail Administration become a single agency.
Parts of the authority responsible for Swedish airports and the Swedish Maritime Administration would also be included.
Presenting the plan in the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” Wednesday, the head of the study said creating a single agency would improve coordination between transport projects, with both environmental and economic advantages. (gw)
