REGIONAL passenger services across the Øresund bridge linking Denmark and Sweden are to be enhanced and reorganised in three phases between 2019 and 2021 to increase capacity and improve reliability.
A majority in the Danish parliament, including the government and two other parties, has decided that the operation and maintenance of the Copenhagen S-Train network will be put out to tender in a public-private partnership.
SWEDISH regional public transport authority Östgötatrafiken has awarded Alstom a contract to supply a further three X61 Coradia Nordic 15kV ac EMUs.
SWEDISH regional public transport operator Skånetrafiken has awarded Alstom a €135m eight-year contract to maintain its fleet of Alstom Coradia Nordic X61 EMUs.
ALSTOM has commenced delivery of 30 four-car class X61 Coradia Nordic EMUs ordered in February 2015 by Skånetrafiken for operation on the Pågatågen regional network in southwest Sweden.
REGULAR passenger services returned to the Swedish town of Trelleborg for the first time since the 1970s on December 12, when Skånetrafiken introduced Pågatåg regional services on the 34km Continental Line from Malmö.
SWEDISH regional transport operator Skånetrafiken has awarded Alstom a SKr 1.5bn ($US 180m) contract to supply 25 additional class X61 Coradia Nordic EMUs, taking its total fleet of these trains to 99 sets.
