Metro Construction Costs in Stockholm


The Transportation and Land Use team has completed their report on the construction of urban rail tunnels in Stockholm, including recently-opened Citybanan and under-construction Nya Tunnelbanan. They will explain why Stockholm builds infrastructure for costs well below global averages, and yet which trends are raising costs dramatically over time.
