Adjacent to the port development other infrastructural projects are being performed.
A new electrified railway between the Southern main line near Åby and the port of Norrköping, the so called Kardonbanan, is being planned. The purpose of building this railway is to make the handling of goods more effective and increase the amount of goods being transported by rail.
The project is co-financed by the Swedish Transport Administration and the Municipality of Norrköping.
New freight yard
When the East Link project is built through Norrköping, the current freight yard will be affected in the extent that it needs to be relocated. Swedish Transport Administration and the Municipality of Norrköping plans to relocate the freight yard to a place where the Kardonbanan will form the connection to a new freight yard.
