Sweden: Systra to Project Manage Construction of New Tramway in Uppsala

The city of Uppsala has selected Systra to provide project management services for the construction of its first tramway.

This project will see Uppsala join Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Norrköping and Lund in the list of Swedish cities to incorporate trams into their current transport networks.

The track platform for the new tramway will be integrated into the urban fabric of Uppsala

Systra will partner with Uppsala to manage the construction of this new tramway, from planning the sites to monitoring the construction works.

Lukas Lybeck Sköld, Business Development Manager, Systra Sweden said:

“We are happy to be able to put the expertise of the SYSTRA group in the field of tramways at the service of the next city in Sweden to have chosen this sustainable mode of transport.”

Groundbreaking for this project is expected to take place in 2025, with passenger services scheduled for 2029.

Once complete, the 17-kilometre line will serve most employment centres and residential areas in Uppsala, stopping at 22 stations.
