Stockholm’s Lidingöbanan light rail system reopens

Listen to this article

Lidingöbanan, a light rail system on Stockholm’s Lidingö island, has reopened following a two-year renovation project.

Services returned to normal on October 25 for the first time for more than two years on the new, improved Lidingöbanan.

Works included the creation of additional double-track sections, upgraded stations and new trams.

New security fencing and crossings will also make the renewed network safer.

As well as investing its existing light rail infrastructure, Stockholm is also looking to expand its network and recently launched a consultation into a proposed tramway between Flemingsberg and Fairfield in the south of the city.
