Finland seeks funding boost to expand local railways

The Finnish government has submitted a request for 66 million euros of funding for various railway projects.

 

The Finnish central government, alongside municipal authorities have been hard at work developing its railway travel capabilities.

In the spotlight is the “One Hour Train” project that aims to establish a highspeed railway link between the Finnish capital of Helsinki and the cities of Turku and Tampere. Trains travelling on the two separate lines will be able to reach a maximum speed of 300 km/h and will be able to reach their destinations within an hour.
