Track maintenance between Gävle and Söderhamn

Between 2 August and 21 November 2021, the Swedish Transport Administration will be working on the tracks between Gävle and Söderhamn. The 80 km long railway section will be upgraded to ensure more reliable and sustainable journeys.

The track work affects the train traffic on the lines: Stockholm-Sundsvall-Umeå, Stockholm-Östersund, (Ljusdal-)Gävle-Stockholm-Linköping and Umeå/Duved-Stockholm-Gothenburg.

How does this affect your journey?

The track maintenance work between Gävle and Söderhamn means that the railway will be closed for traffic during this period. Our trains will take a different route, which means longer travel time and/or journeys with X-trafik. You can find more information about how our traffic is affected further down on this page.

Travel with SJ High-speed trains

Our high-speed trains on the Stockholm-Sundsvall-Umeå line will take a different route but make their regular stops. For those travelling north of Gävle, this means an extended travel time of about 35 minutes.

Our high-speed trains will need to change directions when making their stops in Söderhamn. This means that you will start your journey facing one way and, after stopping in Söderhamn, continue it facing the other way.


Travel with SJ InterCity

Our InterCity trains on the Stockholm-Östersund line will take a different route and will not stop in Söderhamn. For those travelling north of Gävle, this means an extended travel time of about 35 minutes. If you plan to travel to/from Söderhamn, this means that you will need to make an extra change.

We will reduce the number of InterCity departures on the (Ljusdal-)Gävle-Stockholm-Linköping line during the track work period. X-trafik will have more trains running than usual between Gävle and Ljusdal and you can buy tickets for their departures here on sj.se or in our app.


Travel with SJ Night trains

Our night trains on the line Umeå/Duved-Stockholm-Gothenburg will take a different route and will not stop in Söderhamn. If you plan to travel to/from Söderhamn, this means that you will need to make an extra change.

For commuters

In cooperation with X-trafik, we have ensured that commuters will have good travel options during the track maintenance period.

Commuters with an X-trafik ticket with "SJ-tillägg" will be able to travel with our trains as usual. Those of you who travel often with SJ will notice changes in our timetable and fewer departures than usual, and your journey north of Gävle will take a little longer.

For travel to or from Söderhamn, you can travel with our high-speed trains as usual or change to X-trafik's buses in Gävle. X-trafik's buses depart from stop X at Hamnplan at Gävle C and stop C at Söderhamn's travel center. If you travel with an SJ ticket, you can buy the X-trafik bus ticket here on sj.se or in our app when you book your SJ journey.
