In August, we stop train traffic between Malmö and Lund

Plan for the six days in August when there are no trains. Skånetrafiken’s replacement buses will operate the route, but the journey will take longer.

Trafikverket is upgrading the railway between Malmö and Lund, from two tracks to four. This increases the capacity, reduces the risk of disturbances and improves the environment.

Why a total train stop i August?

The four new tracks being built between Malmö and Lund will be placed along the same stretch as the current tracks, and partly below ground. For this reason, traffic will be moved to two temporary tracks during construction. When the temporary tracks are connected, traffic must be stopped in order to allow us to work as safely and as quickly as possible.


Plan for the stop

The closure will have an effect for many – the public, businesses and industry – both directly and indirectly. We therefore encourage all concerned to plan ahead for the interruption of train services and prepare for a challenging week. Up-to-date travel information is available at or with your travel operator.

More trains, fewer disruptions and improved environment

The Southern Main Line between Malmö and Lund is southern Sweden’s most heavily trafficked stretch, used at maximum capacity. Every day, nearly 60,000 people travel on this stretch, and thousands of tonnes of cargo pass it heading north in Sweden, or south towards the continent.


All rail traffic will be stopped between Malmö and Lund from 22 August at 23:00 until 28 August. Follow the work on the Four Tracks and read up-to-date information about the train stop at: (In swedish)
