Summary of ongoing development
As shown in the previous status overview there are continuous and ongoing work with improvements of the infrastructure in northern Sweden. The Swedish Transport Administration continues to improve the roads and all the highways will have separated lanes in so called 2+1 roads. The ports are with few exceptions owned by the municipalities and there are ongoing large investments in the ports of Luleå, Umeå, Sundsvall and Gävle. What regards the implementation of alternative fuels in the corridor there is a state of shared responsibilities between market actors and local and regional authorities, and the government has merely the important role of setting the right incentives through tax regulations. The most important development of the corridor is the railway infrastructure, which is long term and expensive, but extremely important for the industry, for regional growth and for the environment.
