Tramway plans in the Nordic countries

Spårväg i snö i Norrköping.

Spårvagnsstäderna has compiled a list of existing plans and ideas for new tramways in Sweden and the other Nordic countries. Below is a list of projects that have been identified as good when municipalities and regions have analysed the need for future plans. 

Some tramways projects are already decided upon and financed with local, regional and national funds. Other projects have been staked out in general plans or are even earlier in the planning process. The objects differ in scope, Uppsala is planning for brand new tramway, while Gothenburg has several projects in the loop including both smaller and larger ones.

These trunk lines can be converted to trams in the future should the need arise.
