The train station for the proposed rail between Keflavík and Reykjavík has been drawn up, taking the dream one step closer to reality.
MBL reports that the station is a part of the so-called “master plan” to develop Keflavík International Airport to a greater extent. It also so happens that there is a parliamentary resolution to assess the economic feasibility of a train system in the capital area.
Talk of a train between the airport and the capital has been many years in the making. The idea of combining a rail to and from the airport with a rail system within Reykjavík was brought up in 2011. Two years later, the actual costs of such a project were further researched, with the assessment led by Bífröst University rector Runólfur Ágústsson.
Most recently, last June plans were brought up to include a tunnel under the city in the idea, with an estimation of 10 years placed on completion of the project.
