1) Tvärbanan (Lines 30/31) - a semi-circular light rail line (modern tram), which opened in June 2000 from Gullmarsplan to Alvik (9.4 km). In 2002, it was extended towards the east to Hammarby Sjöstad and Sickla Udde on the eastern side of the Sickla canal (2.4 km). Then in 2013, it was extended from Alvik to Solna centrum (5.6 km, with an 800 m tunnel just north of Alvik), and to Solna railway station in 2014 (1 km). A 600 m extension to Sickla station on the Saltsjöbanan completed the 18 km route of what is now line 30 (formerly 22) on 2 Oct 2017. The first section of a northwestern 8 km branch to Kista and Helenelund was scheduled to open to Bromma flygplats on 13 Dec 2020 (line 31) but was delayed until 16 May 2021, while the rest continues under construction.
