Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Stockholm-Malmö line is the same lenghth as the Madrid-Barcelona one, and along the track the population density is the same as in Spain. There aren't many people living in the northern 2/3 of Sweden.

I think the East Link will go forward as planned. There has been no info in the media about funding being cut, and the new government likes infrastructure investments as much as the old one did (which earmarked something like 12 billion euros for rail investments for the next 10 years, only good thing they did).

The Malmö track, I don't know, but if it had been postponed there would have been moaning in the media so I guess it's still green.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
