Stockholm’s Metro to be expanded


Construction and civil engineering companies will be informed about the Stockholm’s metro extension at the Supplier Day 2018, organized by SLL (Stockholms lans landsting) on  Tuesday 13th  November 2018 at Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Stockholm. Registration starts after the summer period. Stockholm is one of the fastest growing metropolitan regions in Europe. The population has been increasing by 35 000 a year.

In January 2014 the government, Stockholm County Council and the City of Stockholm, Municipality of Nacka, Järfälla Municipality and City of Solna, after less than a year of intensive negotiations, signed the agreement on the expansion of the Metro and increased housing construction.

The Metro, currently transporting more than a million travellers a day, will be expanded to accommodate even more passengers and to permit the construction of 82,000 new homes. The government, county council and municipalities have joined to fund the expansion project at the cost of SEK 28.6 billion.

Stockholm County Council is responsible for the expansion of the new Metro: nearly 20 km of new track and 11 new stations on four different sections to Nacka, to Arenastaden and to Barkarby. The Blue line will also be extended to Gullmarsplan and connected to the Green Hagsätra line branch.

The 11.3 km extension of the Blue Line to Nacka (Sickla - Järla - Nacka branch), Södermalm (Kungsträdgården - Sofia - Hammarby kanal branch) and southern suburbs (Gullmarsplan - Slakthusområdet - Sockenplan branch) will be constructed entirely underground, in rock tunnels. The construction is planned to start on 2019.

The 4.1 km extension of the Yellow Line from Odenplan to Arenastaden in Solna will have 3 new stations: Hagastaden, Södra Hagalund and Arenastaden. The Yellow line will connect to the Green line at Odenplan.

All track tunnels will be constructed in rock. Arenastaden station will be built 30 m below ground. The construction is planned to start on 2019.

The 4 km underground extension of the Blue Line from Akalla to Barkarby Station, will include the 2 new stations Barkarbystaden and Barkarby. The rock tunnels construction is planned to start in 2018. Barkarby Station will be about 30 metres below ground.

The depot in Högdalen, which will be used by both the Green Line and the Blue Line, will be enlarged to meet the need for more staging places in the future.T he track tunnel between the Farsta branch of the Green Line and the Högdalen depot will be 2.5 km long. The construction is planned to start on 2019.
