This is the start of a building project that will be noticeable in the surrounding area for years to come.

“Our construction time is about six years, from now until the subway is up and running. It will be most noticeable in the first few years, and least noticeable towards the end, when we will be conducting test drives down in the newly constructed tunnels,” says Anna Nylén, Project Manager for the Blue Line to Barkarby. 

In January, excavators will start rolling into the work areas, and the first blast will be carried out sometime in March.

“I’m looking forward to it! We've been working for a long time to finally get to that day,” says Anna Nylén.
