Scheduled track works in 2018

It's a busy schedule for railway maintenance and extensions in Sweden. The Swedish Transport Administration will be investing billions over the coming years in addressing track capacity and quality issues. Unfortunately, this investment also means sections of the rail network must be partially or completely shut down during certain periods.
