High-speed trains reduce travelling times dramatically. One example is Stockholm-Copenhagen which will take 2 hours 35 min. But, travelling times to all places in Southern Sweden will be appreciably shorter in the European Corridor region.
High-speed trains fill the gap between long journeys by air and shorter trips by car and train. The development of IT and fast communications are creating opportunities for new contacts between people. International studies show that the most substantial growth is achieved in corridors where a high-speed connection is combined with road or motorway.
