These proposals will connect the traffic by land in the northern part of the Baltic. These proposals will also connect Rail Baltica and Europakorridoren , both projects of EU.

Outside these proposals are the possibility to use the connection around the Gulf of Bothnia or to transport through Sankt Petersburg, Russia, around the Gulf of Finland. There are also proposals to build a connection at Kvarken, from Umeå to Vasa, in the middle of the Gulf of Bothnia.
