Track Maintenance in Sweden from June 25th to August 19th

From June 25th until August 19th, 2018, all trains between Stockholm Central and the south of Sweden will stop and turn around at Stockholm Södra and Flemingsberg station, instead of Stockholm Central. SJ High speed trains will arrive and depart from Stockholm Södra during the track work period.  There will also be cases of totally cancelled trains and changes in the departure and arrival stations in the Stockholm area. Travel times will be prolonged in cases when trains are rerouted and/or replacement buses are in operation.

Stockholm Södra is normally a commuter station in Stockholm’s Södermalm district. The travel time between Stockholm Södra and Stockholm City is 3 minutes. The station offers shopping and a restroom. During the track maintenance period, both a manned SJ counter and SJ passenger hosts will be available at the station.

Please note that:

  • Eurail and Interrail Passes valid in Sweden are also valid on replacement bus services.
  • SL trams in the Stockholm area are NOT included in the Pass. Pass holders must buy an additional ticket between Stockholm central and Stockholm Södra / Flemingsberg to use the local tram. The ticket is available at sj.se/en, via the link in the Rail Planner App, at the station Stockholm Södra / Flemingsberg.
