In connection with the expansion of the metro between Älvsjö and Fridhemsplan, & Rundquist, together with the technology consultant WSP, have been awarded the task of designing four new metro stations in Stockholm!
The new metro line will have stations at Fridhemsplan, Liljeholmen, Årstaberg, Årstafältet, Östberga and Älvsjö. The line connects the central and southern Stockholm and contributes to increased capacity of the metro network. The expansion also provides conditions for building an additional 48 000 residences in the city.
It is both fun and important for us To be able to contribute to the continued development of the city by designing stations that are safe, beautiful and comfortable for all travellers to use.
The project is led by the Region Stockholm, Region Stockholm’s Extended Metro Administration(FUT) and will start in August 2022 and run until 2024. The line is planned to open in 2034.
