A decision proposal from the county council’s senior management team has now been tabled. Decisions by the County Council Assembly and the County Council Executive Board are expected during the spring.
The plan is for the new metro station to be located between the already approved stations at Arenastaden and Hagastaden. The location of the station and the proposed entrances were presented during a consultation process at the beginning of the year, and everything is set for the metro station to be included in the railway plan to be submitted later in the year.
“Yes, we have been laying the groundwork for this station for a while, in order to be ready to start construction at the same time as the rest of the Yellow Line,” says Project Manager Malin Harders.
Construction of the Yellow Line is scheduled to begin in 2018 and is expected to take six years.
