Later this year the construction phase of Ostlänken, a high speed rail link, will begin. Ostlänken will bring the Stockholmregion closer together and favour the development and growth of the area tremendously. A train station will be built at the Airport and in 2028 a train ride between Stockholm Skavsta and Stockholm Central station will take 38 minutes. Södertälje and Norrköping will be just 20 minutes away and Linköping a mere 35 minutes. The building of the rail link is expected to create 25 000 jobs.
Through funding by EU:s Conneting Europe Facility, vital pieces of information for the on-going planning process are now being presented. SWECO, a Swedish consultant company specialised in engineering, environmental technology and architecture was given two assignments; likely number of passengers by 2040 and means of transport by these passengers.
5,7 million passengers likely in 2040
The prognosis carried out by SWECO confirms the earlier calculations that 5.7 million persons will travel by way of Stockholm Skavsta airport on an annual basis in 2040. This means a daily flow in the area of between 30 000 to 40 000 persons compared to todays flow of 5000-6000 persons. The growth will have a huge impact on the layout of area.
Daily 5000 are expected to choose train to and from airport
A traffic hub is planned by the airport’s train station permitting a smooth system for cars, regional buses, airport coaches and rail transports to the freight harbour in Oxelösund for shipping in the Baltic Sea, as well as bicycles. In order to achieve this, SWECO calculated on the chosen means of transportation. The report shows that 5 000 persons will arrive to the area by train daily and that 170 airport coaches are expected to circulate on a daily basis. The study provides vital planning material not least in deciding access to and exits off the motorway for all the different vehicles.
Passenger flow is calculated for new terminal building
An analysis is currently being performed on the expected passenger flow in the future terminal building. The findings will be presented in June and construction work on a new terminal is expected to begin in 2022.
The Airport is surrounded by a substantial amount of hitherto unexploited land. This is about to change and the Consultant agency WSP has identified what qualities should form the bases for the business case. The analyses shows that proximity and connectivity allowing local, regional, national and international flow, be it goods, services or knowledge are what sets the area apart.
