To be able to meet future demands, Port of Gävle is doubling the railway capacity on the container terminal with two additional tracks.
Port of Gävle’s terminal operator, Yilport, started the project in early September. The expansion of the railway capacity is set to be completed in Q4 2023. The project will add two extra railway tracks which means that the container terminal will be equipped with four railway tracks leading into the terminal area.
The railway currently consists of two 300-meter-long tracks. With the additional two tracks the railway will reach a total of 1 200 meters divided on four tracks. By doubling the number of tracks at the container terminal, Port of Gävle is taking a step forward in enhancing the operational capacity. This investment is aimed at improving efficiency, reducing congestion, and providing even better service.
