Progress for Rovaniemi - Arctic Ocean railway line
The Arctic railway would improve Finland's logistical position and accessibility, as well as promote connections with the whole of Europe, the ministry declared. Such a link would be an alternative transport route to be exploited for Finland's imports and export activities.
So what will happen next? Research work on the EUR 2 billion Arctic rail line project will continue together with Norway, and a joint working group will be appointed to determine the project's further stages and work schedule before the end of 2018. (ben)
