Okay, so here we go guys. The new barriers being tested at Åkeshov.

First up, the Korean rope barriers.








The Parisian-style barriers (in fact exactly the same as in use in Paris).




The Shanghai-style barriers as used on the Shanghai metro. Built by a Chinese company.




So there you go. Verdict?

Video at Åkeshov since I was there looking at the barriers.




While I was out, I also had to go to work. So here are a couple of videos...

Firstly, at Sankt Eriksplan metro station and then out to the bus stop.




Bus ride from Sankt Eriksplan to Karolinska.

About the Stockholm Metro: I hate to question how they do it, but is there any particular reason how the bedrock is left exposed, crude, and unfinished, like, would it be cheaper that way? Also, excellent idea to actually decorate all of that exposed rock. It is what makes Stockholm's metro system unique.

It should be noted that a few of Rio de Janeiro's metro stations, like Ipanema/General Osorio, have some of their rock exposed and crude, also.

The exposed bedrock was an active design choice and less about finances. The stations adhere to many of the ideals of organic architecture, meaning they are intended to express the interplay between the natural world and the built environment. In stations like Rådhuset, for example, this relationship is very clear through references to Neoclassical and aboriginal civilization, with the bases of columns poking out underneath the very richly colored bedrock.

The stations stand in juxtaposition to the clean, sleek, and occasionally sterile designs we see elsewhere; they ultimately remind us of civilization's bearings within nature and that our developments in society cannot occur at the expense of our world. In my opinion it's an incredibly nuanced and beautiful statement.

Also, there is very little bedrock exposed in the Stockholm subway. Almost all of it is covered by concrete. That's why it isn't all jagged and rock-looking.

It's funny... I really like the rock stations to visit, but not use every day. They're deep, damp and dark. Though not as inspiring, stations like Östermalmstorget (at platform level) are actually nicer to use on a daily basis. I'd rather have a functional, but bright station than a gloomy and arty one.

I grew up on the blue line and saw those stations all the time. The way the Green line stations are so close to the street felt a bit strange. But now that I've lived on the green line for over 3 years it feels just as at home and, like you point out, clearly more convenient. All I miss is escalators and lifts all the way from street to platform, but that's due to the age of the stations not the proximity to the street or the tiled vs cave station designs.
I agree that the cave stations are, while often having an artistic surface treatment (some are still dark and boring tho), are all-in-all not as good as the more clean-cut older ones. IMO the two are however easily combined when designing new stations.

I agree - it's possible to pay homage to the cave stations, but make them more bright and welcoming, plus control water seepage to the same level as they have in the other stations. Most stations in Stockholm have some form of art (like Östermalmstorget mentioned previously), so I think here does definitely have a good template for making stations both interesting and functional.

Also, you're right - I never thought about it before, but nearly all blue line stations have elevators / escalators right the way down to the platform from the street level, as the barriers are directly at the entrance! How unobservant of me!

Some more recent views of public transport in Stockholm.

First up, two bus videos from the number 40 bus (with a very considerate and nice bus driver).

First section is from Ekhagen (very narrow and hilly) to Universitetet (metro transfer).




Next section is from Universitetet to Odenplan. We drive past Norra Länken here too. The road tunnel is due to be opened on the 30th of this month.




Next video is of the bridge between Skanstull and Gullmarsplan. This bridge is actually very high. Also features a change between the green line of the metro to the Tvärbanan (light rail).




Light rail (Tvärbanan) arriving at Gullmarsplan.




Finally, a longer video with the Light rail at Liljeholmen with a transfer to the red line on the metro (tunnelbana). The video also showcases the underground bus terminal at Liljeholmen.

You would be amazed at how hard it is to see this unless you go looking for it. It's all fenced off and quite inaccessible. It sure is an impressive project.

yeah, and that whole site will be covered over and made into a park afterwards. Connecting two parks (one of 'em small) that have been separated by the rail lines for a long long time. More commuter train to the station next door and a bigger, better park that more people will use even to just get from A to B across it... Citybanan is disruptive during construction there, but afterwards it'll mean a big improvement for the place (even if not counting the added trains).

Plus, have you seen how far Odenplan has advanced lately? The big hole for Citybanan is actually filled now.

I had not seen that. Haven't been on the surface there in months, only passed by on the subway. Re-opening that square will make it really feel like it'll all be done soon.

Whatever people say about Stockholms' tunnelbana, the very nice combination of concrete/cement, natural stone, art, pavement & electronic equipement is very nicespectacular to look at.
