Persson Opens Construction of City Tunnel
Prime Minister Göran Persson was in Malmö Tuesday to help open the construction sight for the new City Tunnel.
The City Tunnel is one of Sweden’s biggest construction projects with an estimated cost reaching into the billions.
The new 6 kilometer tunnel will link rail traffic from central Malmö to the Öresund Bridge, which links Sweden to Denmark.
Rail traffic currently moves slowly through the outskirts of the city, but the new tunnel will enable traffic to run smoother and faster, saving time for travellers between the two Nordic nations.
