Level crossing gates provide faster and safer rail transportation to Norra Hamnen

Level crossing gates at previously unguarded level crossings shall reduce the waiting time for transports to and from Norra Hamnen. This measure is of great importance for CMP's development in the area.

The railway track out to CMP at Norra Hamnen has several crossings where road and rail traffic meet. Up until now the crossings have been unguarded and have lacked gates. In order for the trains to pass manual manoeuvring is required which means progress is slow, at the same time as the crossing road traffic is blocked.

As part of the development of transportation to and from Norra Hamnen, The City of Malmö has commenced work on erecting railway gates at these crossings.

"This is an important measure  for us to succeed with our growth at Norra Hamnen. A transport chain is never stronger than its weakest link, and the level crossing gates are a decisive piece of the puzzle for our transports. This benefits both CMP and our customers", says Johan Röstin, CMP's CEO.

"It feels really good that we are able to carry out this streamlining of the rail traffic for Norra Hamnen. The gates will provide a better traffic flow in the area at the same time as we se obvious environmental gains with the reduced waiting times", explains Kerstin Gustafsson, Director of Roads at the City of Malmö.
