Construction of Västlänken - Station Korsvägen
In Gothenburg, a tunnel is being built under the central parts that will give the city a continuous commuter and regional train traffic. Three new stations will make the journey easier, faster and with fewer changes. Korsvägen is an important hub for public transport due to its proximity to the Swedish Exhibition Center and Gothia Towers, Liseberg, Scandinavium, Universeum and more.
Station Korsvägen will be located under the current tram station and is expected to be completed in 2026. In February 2022, the blasting of the rock where the station will be located began, which means that traffic may be shut down for about 10 minutes up to twice a day. The explosions take place only during the day and a heads-up in the form of an audible signal will be given. The impact on the Swedish Exhibition Center and Gothia Tower’s operations is very limited. This part of the work is expected to continue until the spring of 2023.
