Stockholm light rail opens

Stockholm’s new orbital light rail line, route 22 from Gullmarsplan to Liljeholmen, opened on 8 January after a five-month delay, linking two major bus and metro interchanges south and south-west of the city. The line is operated on behalf of SL by the Tunnelbana subsidiary of the French CGEA (Vivendi) group. Rolling stock was built by Bombardier to a similar design to recent LRVs for Köln (Cologne) and Croydon. The remainder of the 10-km line, from Liljeholmen to Alvik, is expected to open in August.
