Uppsala Light Rail Project

Uppsala is growing and is one of Europe's most rapidly expanding regions. By 2050, we expect to have a population of 320,000. This development is of course looked upon very optimistically. This will bring many new opportunities. It will also mean much more commuting within the region.

We aspire to be a model in the field of urban and rural development. Our vision is for 75 percent of transportation in Uppsala to be made on foot, by bicycle or public transport. To achieve this, travelling by car must decrease. We need to complement the current public transport system with several robust, high-capacity solutions if we want to stay mobile and enjoy great accessibility to everyday services. A city for everyone should also provide public transport for everyone.

Infrastructure Creates New Opportunities

To ensure growth that is not only dynamic but also sustainable, the City of Uppsala, Region Uppsala and the Swedish state have signed an agreement that makes it possible to develop new residential areas and business premises. These new areas will be interconnected with each other as well as the rest of the city through an improved transport infrastructure.

The Swedish state's long-term financial support will enhance Uppsala's attractiveness as a place to both live and work in the region. People commute both to and from Uppsala and an efficient transport system empower public transportation as an alternative to commuting by car.

Journeys of the future

In the densely urbanized city of the future, innovation is paramount, for the sake of both citizens and the environment. We need to allow more space for cyclists, pedestrians and public transportation. More room for inspiring adventures and meetings. Shops, cafés, green areas, workplaces and homes must all be accommodated for.

In this new cityscape, the light rail will be the obvious way to get around and as a part of the sustainable mobility solutions that a vibrant Uppsala will provide. This is the infrastructure of the future.
