In my quick search for the post above yours I could only find reference the the "summer 2017" opening date. The tunnel is basically finished by New Years, so summer 2017 is still 7 months past the completion of the construction. They've known about the early delivery date of the tunnel for a while and so they should have been able to plan ahead for it.

After some digging at http://www.trafikverket.se/nara-dig/...lan/Citybanan/ where it keeps saying just "2017" everywhere I found in the Q&A section this info:

So I looks like I was wrong! yay! Less than a year to go now.

EDIT:
A new quote from a neighbouring project (Getingmidjan - the double tracks where ALL trains through Stockholm run today, it'll have a major renovation done once Citybanan is opened).

Not sure when that name started being used, but at least since the 1980s from my personal memories. Here's an old pic of that stretch: source

Stockholm City Line set for July 2017 opening
Thursday, November 03, 2016



SWEDISH infrastructure manager Trafikverket confirmed on November 3 that the SKr 16.8bn ($US 1.88bn) Stockholm City Line will open at 05.00 on July 10, 2017, doubling main line rail capacity through the centre of the city

The 6km underground line from Tomteboda in the north to Stockholm South will take suburban trains away from the congested double-track line between Stockholm Central and Stockholm South, where suburban trains currently account for around 60% of traffic

There are new videos about expension of the blue line. It will be built from Kungsträdgården with a branch to Nacka and a branch to Hagsätra replaceing the green line-branch.

Expending on Södermalm:



Nacka-branch:



Hagsätra-branch:



The globen and Enskede gård stations will be demolished and replaced with a new station under ground. The branch is already built, but will be connected to the blue line.

I think the Sofia station on Södermalm is mot interesting. Because of the clif and water on Södermalm. Station will be located +/- 100 meters underground (!!). There will be only elevators, and no escalators (like in Spain). It will be one of the deepest stations in the world, or will be the deepest.

Station "Arsenalna" (Арсенальнa) Kiev opened in the '60 in is the deepest station in the world located 105 meters under ground.

Today, due to the snowy weather, almost all buses in the county are cancelled. LRT & trams are somewhat impacted. Subway and commuter rail running fine.

All buses in the centre of Stockholm (innerstaden) were cancelled. Same in Bromma, Haninge, Märsta, Sigtuna, Rinkeby, Tensta, Sollentuna, Solna, Syndbyberg, ...

I see that ship lines have no problems too. Could it be an idea to introduce more ferry lines?

This is silly - station with only lifts and with no escalators - that would be very slow in terms of traffic flow

Maybe

Elevators can be better than escalators if they are big and fast. They plan to build escalators running in seconds.

There is a risk to fall and die on big escalators.

There are no capacity issues what so ever, even if a full train would disembark you would not have to wait very long for a lift.

The travel time for a lift that is 100 meters long is 25-30 seconds. The travel time for riding the escalators down to a station 100 meters deep is 4 minutes as in the case of Arsenalna in Kiev.

You pick you choice

Lift
This one is 130 meters and take 30 seconds


Or Escalator

I would be glad if the Sofia station will be built 106 meters under ground

1 meter deeper than Arsenalna.
