<strong>the</strong> <strong>Norsborg</strong> <strong>Metro</strong> <strong>Depot</strong><br />

We have now begun <strong>the</strong> process of c<strong>on</strong>structing a new<br />

<strong>Metro</strong> depot in <strong>Norsborg</strong>. The <strong>Norsborg</strong> <strong>Depot</strong> is expected<br />

to come into service in 2016 and will be used to clean,<br />

maintain and repair <strong>Metro</strong> rolling stock.<br />

To ensure that <strong>the</strong> depot does not take up more space than<br />

necessary, it will mostly be c<strong>on</strong>structed underground, in<br />

Eriksbergsåsen, where <strong>the</strong>re will be enough room to park<br />

<strong>Metro</strong> carriages. There will also be cleaning, repair and<br />

servicing facilities al<strong>on</strong>g Hallundavägen, with offices, staff<br />

rooms, and so <strong>on</strong>.<br />

While we are building, <strong>the</strong> work will be noticeable.<br />

The planned depot building west of <strong>Norsborg</strong> stati<strong>on</strong><br />

will require c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> transports via Hallundavägen to<br />

<strong>the</strong> E4. To enable c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> and blasting work in<br />

Eriksbergsåsen, a work tunnel will enter <strong>the</strong> ridge from<br />

Sankt Botvids väg. C<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> transports will also be<br />

exiting from this tunnel.<br />

Blasting and drilling will be carried out between 07.00 and<br />

22.00 every working day. After 22.00, blasted rock will<br />

be excavated from <strong>the</strong> site. You can read more about <strong>the</strong><br />

blasting and how to receive a ph<strong>on</strong>e warning 30 minutes<br />

beforehand at sl.se/norsborg.<br />

<strong>Norsborg</strong> has been chosen for <strong>the</strong> new <strong>Metro</strong> depot because<br />

it is both close to <strong>the</strong> terminus and because <strong>the</strong> local rock<br />

is of good quality. The proximity of <strong>the</strong> depot to <strong>the</strong> terminus<br />

reduces driving distances, which is beneficial for <strong>the</strong><br />

envir<strong>on</strong>ment.<br />

The new depot is part of a whole system that will pave<br />

<strong>the</strong> way for <strong>the</strong> future of <strong>Metro</strong> services in Stockholm and<br />

which also includes new rolling stock and a new signalling<br />

system. The new initiatives will enable greater reliability for<br />

<strong>Metro</strong> Red Line services as well as expanding <strong>the</strong>m.<br />

In c<strong>on</strong>juncti<strong>on</strong> with <strong>the</strong> depot c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong>, <strong>the</strong> <strong>Metro</strong><br />

stati<strong>on</strong>s at <strong>Norsborg</strong> and Hallunda will also be upgraded.<br />

Happening Right Now<br />

We are now beginning <strong>the</strong> surveying process. This means<br />

that we will be inspecting buildings in <strong>the</strong> area – checking<br />

for visible damage, c<strong>on</strong>ducting leakage inspecti<strong>on</strong>s <strong>on</strong> ducts<br />

and flues, surveying chimneys and so <strong>on</strong>. During <strong>the</strong>se inspecti<strong>on</strong>s,<br />

we will need to access buildings and apartments.<br />

Going forward, we will start establishing <strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong><br />

facilities, for example site huts, materials storage areas,<br />

space for vehicles and machinery, and so <strong>on</strong>. We will also<br />

build a stormwater p<strong>on</strong>d, remove existing tracks, fence off<br />

<strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> site and carry out a certain amount<br />

of blasting.<br />

We regret that you may experience some disrupti<strong>on</strong> during<br />

<strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> period. We will do our utmost to minimize<br />

this and hope that you appreciate <strong>the</strong> final results.<br />

Please respect <strong>the</strong> barriers!<br />

There are several reas<strong>on</strong>s for <strong>the</strong> barriers around<br />

<strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> site, <strong>the</strong> most important of which<br />

is safety! Please respect <strong>the</strong>se barriers, for your<br />

own safety as well as <strong>the</strong> safety of o<strong>the</strong>rs.

Kärsbyvägen<br />

Skarpbrunnavägen will be closed at its western end until<br />

fur<strong>the</strong>r notice. This means that <strong>the</strong> normal route of Bus 708<br />

will have to be changed and that a smaller bus will serve<br />

Skarpbrunnavägen/Karsby Internati<strong>on</strong>al School. During <strong>the</strong><br />

c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> period, <strong>the</strong> new route will be Tre Källors väg –<br />

Tumbakopplet – Hallundavägen. Bus 708 will c<strong>on</strong>nect with<br />

its normal route at Karsby Internati<strong>on</strong>al School.<br />

The bus stops at Kärsbyvägen, Skarpbrunnavägen, Sankt<br />

Albans Väg, and Eriksbergsåsen will not be served during<br />

<strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> period.<br />

Normal services will be replaced by a free shuttle service<br />

from 07.00 until 19.00.<br />

Pedestrians and Cyclists<br />

During <strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> period, we are planning to build a<br />

<strong>the</strong> c<strong>on</strong>structi<strong>on</strong> site via a stair tower with a bike ramp.<br />
