Abstract [en]

From a sustainability point of view, the development of Stockholm County both in terms of

population and activities will induce a high demand for public transport needs in the coming

decades. Several districts currently badly linked to the Stockholm rapid transit network will see

a large increase of inhabitants and workplaces, like Hagastaden or Årstafältet. Therefore a new

North-South high capacity and fast connection is needed between these areas and the rail

network. This thesis will estimate the corridors and the infrastructure of this new line.

Since another objective of the new North-South Metro line is to create an alternative to the

existing radial network with all the lines merging to Stockholm Central station, this thesis will

also evaluate how this new line will improve the robustness of the global public transport

network in Stockholm region. That is, how the passenger loads on the other lines will be

influenced by the new link as the aim is to decrease the load on the existing overcrowded

stretches (e.g. around T-Centralen) and reduce travel times. Comparisons will be made between

the different alternatives, with and without the new line, to evaluate the efficiency of the new

line in terms of passenger load, travel time savings and economically
