The Hallandsås Tunnel (Swedish: Hallandsåstunneln), also known as the Hallandsas Ridge Tunnel or Scanlink, is a railway tunnel under construction in Sweden. The planned length is 8.5 km (5.3 miles). It will be located on the Västkustbanan (West Coast Railway), on the section between Ängelholm and Halmstad in southwestern Sweden. When finished, it will connect the city of Gothenburg, Sweden with Malmö, Sweden. Today there is a single track, curvy, steep railway over the ridge. The project was conceived by the European Round Table of Industrialists and the Swedish Railway Administration in the 1980s.
