Lund which is located close to Malmö will be the first city to get a light-rail line that will become a part of the future regional network. A new LRT line will link a transportation hub Clemenstorget (close to the Central railway station) with the European Spallation Source (ESS) which is currently under construction. The city hospital, IDEON Science park, a new brand new scientific laboratory Max IV and some other important objects of attraction will be connected with this line. The construction phase of the project should start next year and the traffic launch is schedeled for year 2018 or early 2019.

The project is a part of the planned urban development of the city.
According to Statistics Sweden, there were 115 968 residents in Lund in 2014 making it the third largest city in Skåne county. The largest city in this region Malmö is located very close to Lund.

I really hope that they opt for an underground section closest to Lund station, since having it in the middle of the Clemenstorget is a really stupid one otherwise. If they keep it at grade, then they should strive to have it connected with the main station so that you could get god access between them without the need to cross over a plaza in bad weather.

Other than that, I like it!

Is this tram line a done deal or could be still derailed?

Lets suppose it is goint to come. These are fantastic news. I was completely unaware of this project. I think the corridor is well chosen and generates considerable amounts of ridership. at least the currently operating busses are very busy during rush hour. I also always wondered if they are really serious about making this extension with this science village and this top notch synchrotron truly urban or more like something that is in reality staunchly suburban like the peripheral parts of the campus. But then, they are even transforming those already existing parts of the campus, making it a lot denser.

I don't share the criticism regarding the terminal stop at Clemenstorget. Putting that station underground would be a waste of money (unless you would want to cross the rail to continue westwards). If weather protection is the issue, built a roofed passage from the stop to the station entrance. Done. And it costs nothing in comparison.

PS: So Lund is going to have a real tram, while Malmö has only this bus masquarading as tram? (Well and citytunneln of course)

It would only take a local referendum to derail it. Not that the political majority will allow than to happen.

I noticed none of the the tram huggers here mentioned the cost. A cool billion kronor. For 5.5 km of track.

One billion for 5.5 km of a central tram axis seems to be within what I would have expected, especially in a high working cost country like Sweden.

Lund has only 2/3 of the population of let's say Innsbruck but it has a very vibrant and important university and research facilities. Innsbruck manages to support not one tram line but a whole network. And the chose corridor as it is is at its very limit already during rush hour. That is not the so much the case at off peak hours but when you are taking the plans into account, the area will become a lot more mixed and considerably denser in the near future.

PT definitely would have had to be expanded along this major axis connecting the main urban expansion area, university and research campuses with the centre and the rail station. Possibly, a high to very high frequency bus service could have coped but given the size of the urban development plans this can be at least questioned. Quite possibly nothing short of true BRT would have sufficed. And from there its not such a huge step to a light rail.

PS: If you think infrastructure for a heavy trafficketed bus corridor is free, have a look how that corridor looks like already in certain parts. Busses are heavy, they cause substantial wear.

Protesters may stop the Lund tram-project.

On Thursday the City Council decided to give a building permit for the tramway that is supposed to go from Clemenstorget to ESS on Brunnshög.

But on Friday two politicians from "Renew Lund", Jan Annerstedt and Sverker Oredsson, made an appeal to the administrative court.

We think that the decision has been taken in contravention of the Municipal Act, says Jan Annerstedt.

- You make an investment decision without having financial coverage for it. It may not actually be done according to the law, as we have interpreted it, he says.

Ridiculous, why would the politicians have to worry about 30-40 millions or so missing in the budget when they know the budget will go over with 500 million anyway.

Isn't it old news? The project is approved (including the budget) and the construction phase should start in the foreseeable future. This is great news for Lund which is set to become an even larger city in the future.

God Jul/Merry Christmas!

Malmöringen, a long awaited ring line in Malmö, just cleared a major hurdle when a decision was made in the Swedish Land and Environment Court regarding noise levels. The decision means that trains will now be able run more frequently, enabling passenger services.

The new route will connect the eastern suburbs, including some of the poorest neighbourhoods, to the central station in about 10 minutes. Trains will run every 30 minutes between 6 AM - 10 PM. Expected start of the service is in 2018.

The new service will make way for large investments in new housing along the line.

Is that such a good idea? Won't the high crime rates along the line discourage people from taking it? I know that I avoid the blue line to Rinkeby for that very reason unless I absolutely have to take it.

I can guarantee that you won't have any more problems with crime around the Cityringen stations than any given T-bana station in Stockholm, including those in the inner city.

I definitely feel safer in the inner city stations than those on the blue line, though. Seriously, have you been out to Rinkeby/Tensta these days? Waiting on the platforms can feel very intimidating at times. It's a bit like catching the Södertälje pendeltåg later at night as well - with gangs on there drinking and being obnoxious it really feels uncomfortable. I honestly don't know what the situation is like down in Malmö with Rosengård, which is why I asked.
