On April 22 the new Flottsund bridge was opened after a closure of one and a half years and rebuilding.
During the spring the Swedish Transport Administration continues with the work to connect the double-track railway past Gamla Uppsala. Since work is in progress and the rail is closed to train traffic, the Upptåget train service is replaced on the Vattholma - Uppsala route.
As line 288 is improved, new opportunities are also opening up to provide faster public transit along the route. A proposal has been drawn up where the basic idea is that journey will go faster through a sharp increase in express travel and that buses will also go along straighter lines.
In the month of November 2016 we conducted a dialog tour concerning the stop proposal in the new line network in 2017. Thank you to everyone who got involved and submitted comments. The next step is to summarize and review these.
