Currently that area looks like car-centric hell. This plan really improves things.

There's even an Instagram group dedicated to Lidingöbanan and there already are some nice pictures of the new trams.

I do wish they would clean the vomit splashes off the new stairs at Odenplan. They have been there for weeks and they do nothing when I tell them about it.

That side of the building and the interior is nice. The side towards the square? I'm am very disappointed! Looks way clumsier and the seating/stairs is much smaller than what the renderings showed.

Well, the original plans were probably made by architects without cost and buildability in mind. Even the current structure is no joke from a technical point of view, the main contractor for Odenplan brought in a premium engineering firm from the UK to solve it. While you can build virtually anything nowadays if you have the money, from some point on it's usually just not worth it if you haven't some oil and natural gas lying around.

That being said, I am a little disappointed, too. Value-engineering is much more common now than it seems to have been a decade ago.

I have question on Spårväg City extension - is new Lidingo Bridge planned to be built as part of tram extension to Ropsten?

If I understand you correctly - No.
The bridge is part of Lidingöbanan which has it's end stop on the Stockholm side. So any new bridge would have to include tracks for that. However, connecting those tracks to Spårväg City at least was the plan.

So, I promised I would feature the Lidingöbanan, and here we go. Note the improved tracks and the new rolling stock. A massive improvement, though the frequency could be bumped up to every 15 minutes in my opinion...

Added bonus, two stations en route.

Ropsten (Red Line, Ropsten branch, line 13).






Mariatorget station (Red Lines, both branches).

Okay, I've got a couple of videos for you.

First up, Stockholms Södra station on the Pendeltåg.






Next a ride from Stockholm Centralstation to Sundbyberg on the pendeltåg.
