Stockholm City Line Enters Commercial Service

Commercial operations began on the new Stockholm City Line today, July 10, with the first train departing from Stockholm at 05:04.

The new City Line will double main line rail capacity through the centre of Stockholm, diverting suburban trains away from the previously congested double-track line.

Stockholm City Line

After 8 years of construction, the Citybanan cross-city tunnel under Stockholm is now open for revenue. Construction of the two new commuter rail stations and the 6km long City Line has been underway since January 2009.

The commuter trains can now run on two new tracks, segregating them from the congested district, regional and freight services through the city. All commuter trains have now moved below ground, which means that regional trains, long distance trains and freight trains have more room on the tracks overground.

The new commuter stations, Stockholm City and Stockholm Odenplan, are located directly beneath the subway to T-Centralen and Odenplan.
