The Oslo to Gothenburg journey time by high-speed rail is estimated at one hour; today it takes 3 hours and 52 minutes. The Uddevalla to Oslo journey time will also be one hour. Naturally, passengers will be able to travel the shorter distances between the stations if they wish. Trains will stop at least once or twice per hour at the stations planned for Kungälv, Stenungsund, Uddevalla, Munkedal, Lysekil, Tanum, Strömstad-Skee, Halden, Sarpsborg, Askim and Ski.
The Østfold / Bohus County border region will become an expanding economic growth region with extensive commuting and cultural exchanges between the countries. A community that spans the border between two countries will free up untapped potential for education, work, tourism and culture. Imagine you are standing on the platform in Uddevalla; the train arrives and within half an hour you alight in Gothenburg. Equally, you could well work in Oslo, Strömstad or Halden and leave in the morning, work a full day and be back home again in time for dinner with your family or friends.
