The Stockholm metro is being extended by 20 kilometers of new tracks and 11 new stations. All track tunnels will be built in the rock underground.
New metro branches:
Akalla to Barkarby,
Odenplan to Arenastaden and
Kungsträdgåren to Nacka and the southern suburbs.
Planned start of construction: 2018.
Planned construction period: 6-8 years.
Easy access to public transportation is a key priority when 78 000 new homes are being built in Järfälla, Nacka, Solna and Stockholm.
Stockholm County Council's Extended Metro Administration is responsible for the expansion.
