Swedish Rail Calls for Speed

Swedish Rail Administration wants to increase speed limits while waiting for the coming high speed tracks to be finished.

The Rail authorities hopes to raise the limit from 200 to 500 km per hour in the southern and western part of the country, according to Swedish News Agency TT.

This would mean that the journey time between Stockholm and Malmö, which takes 4 hours today, would be an hour shorter.
