New bidirectional trams operated by Skånetrafiken, will have modern low floors and will have a specific focus on passenger accessibility.
The city of Lund has decided to build a new tram line for a more modern urban mobility and infrastructure. This investment will make Lund the fourth city in Sweden to invest in tram travel, following in the footsteps of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Norröping.
The line will have seven trams that will traverse the line between Lund Cental Station and the Science Village of ESS. The trains will be operated by Swedish regional operator, Skånetrafiken.
The trams will be bidirectional, approximately 33 metres in length and will have a central focus on accessibility and passengers with reduced mobility with ample space for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
The modern low floors will be equipped with traction motors by Trakionssysteme Austria (TSA).
The line is expected to be operational by summer 2020.
