Great update - thanks for sharing Citybanan's photos. It's incredible to see how well things are progressing, and, coupled with that, how well media relations are handled on this project.

They do look good! The seats are a nice touch, except when we expand the system. Are they going to update the seat covers then?

^I hope they update the pattern as the network changes. Only changing the actual seats when needed though. That way we'll see different patterns next to eachother. The same colours and the same style but slightly different lines

Sundbyberg railway tunnel

Hopefully, another exciting railway project will come true.
A new railway tunnel for commuter trains will be constructed in the urban area of Stockholm.
The railway tracks (2+2) and stations will be constructed in a new railway tunnel which will be located between Marabouparken and the border between Sundbyberg and Solna municipalities (Central Sundbyberg). The new tunnel under Sundbyberg is a part of the regional project 'Mälarbanan'.

(c) sunbyberg.se


Some time ago the financing was approved only for the first stage of the project and no construction works were started. However, yeasterday it was officially approved that both stages of the project are financed and the construction work may start soon [after the final approval during the kommunal meeting on 25th of March].

More information: Sundbyberg stad, Trafikverket, Stockholm Projekt.

I used to work in one of the buildings on that map! the rail line creates a real division of the city today. Worth noting is that the rail line is the reason the city exists at all, it was started as a rail-suburb of Stockholm (an old-school TOD, if you will).

The plan is a good one, and I hope it starts as soon as possible. The dream scenario would be to tunnel it "all the way", i.e. So far that the commuter lines connect to Citybanan underground. Would be awesome, but sadly Solna City doesn't have 2G€ laying around for that use.

A video presentation of how the tunnel (sänktunnel) will be constructed under Riddarfjärden (between Söder Mälarstrand and Riddarholmen) in Central Stockholm (a stage of the project 'Citybanan'):

Stockholm (and the rest of Sweden) seems to be putting some serious heavy investment into public transport. Is there any reason for this, or has it always just been like this?

It's certainly an amazing system. Svartmetall must feel like he's in Valhalla after living in PT-deprived Auckland for so long.

The green and socialist left has always rewarded public transport and put a lot of investment in to it, which I think is good.

I personally think that the Stockholm subway is very underutilized due to sparse population density It is almost empty after/before rushhour compared to the metro systems in St Petersburg & Moscow which are always busy with many passengers, rush hour means serious crowds and that you have to squeeze yourself into the subway car, that rarely happends in Stockholm.

Both cities are much bigger than Stockholm and have much larger systems and riderships. The other reason is that the Stockholm tunnelbana is the largest system per capita in the world, closely followed by Oslo. That means we have far more metro per person than any other country.

That said, the utilisation rate of the Stockholm tunnelbana is quite high based on length even though the ridership in this estimate is undercounted (it's off according to the latest SL figures). As for squeezing onto the tunnelbana - the central sections of the green line and the northern sections of the red line are certainly like this for almost an hour during rush hour - take it from a daily commuter who gets squashed against the door of the train...
