The Government of Sweden, through the National Negotiation on Housing and Infrastructure, has reached an agreement with the Stockholm City Council, to invest SEK30.2 billion by 2035 to improve public transport infrastructure for 100,370 apartments, which are to be constructed during the same period. The investment will include SEK5.1 billion for rolling stock and depots.


The scope of work includes four public transport projects, including a new six-station North-South metro line from Fridhemsplan to Älvsjö (SEK12.6 billion); a southern light-rail line from Älvsjö to Flemingsberg via Masmo, Skärholmen, and Fruängen (SEK4.2 billion); extension of the Roslagsbanan urban railway line to Odenplan and T-Centralen station (SEK7.1 billion); and the construction of a new metro station at Tapiola on the planned Yellow Line (SEK1.2 billion).


Work on all four projects is expected to begin by 2026.
