At a combined terminal, goods are easily transhipped between, for example, truck and rail, and are already available, for example, in Nässjö and Vaggeryd.

For a few years there has also been a smaller facility in Torsvik, but a full-sized facility in the large industrial area has long been on the wish list.

Now the ruling majority wants to press the start button in connection with the fact that a new electrified railway between Byarum and Tenhult has been given the go-ahead.

- We see that for many companies that want to establish themselves, rail transport is incredibly important, and now we feel that it is time, says the municipal board's chairman Ann-Marie Nilsson (C) to SVT Nyheter Jönköping.

Will help the central city grow

With a combi terminal at Torsvik, she also expects that the current railway yard at Solåsen can be closed down, and that the land can instead be used for urban development south of Munksjön.

More details about the investment will be presented at a press conference on Tuesday morning.
