The project involves constructing two additional tracks on the 8km section between Arlöv north of Malmö and Flackarp south of Lund, reconstruction of Hjärup, Åkarp and Arlöv stations, and elimination of the level crossing at Åkarp.

There will now be a three-week appeal period for local residents to raise any objections to the plans.

The project will be tendered on an early contractor involvement (ECI) basis with a single contract covering both civil works and track, electrification, signalling, and telecommunications. Trafikveket plans to appoint a contractor next April with the aim of starting construction in late-2017, and the project is due to be completed in 2023.
