Citytunneln, or the City Tunnel, is a 17 kilometre rail link between the current terminal station Malmö Central and the Oresund Bridge, currently under construction. 6 kilometres of the new railway will run underground through the city centre, with the tunnel excavations completed in April 2008. The purpose of the project is partly to reduce travel times between Malmö and the Danish capital Copenhagen, partly to increase capacity on the Scanian network by changing Malmö Central station from a terminus to a transit station. The work is projected to cost SEK 9.45 billion, and has been scheduled to open in December 2010.

Route

The railway will start from a new partly underground station, built beneath Malmö Central station called Malmö Nedre. From there the railway will run in a tunnel to the new underground station Triangeln, built 25 meters underground in central Malmö. It then turns south until it reaches Holma, from where it will continue in an open shaft to the new station and development area Hyllie. Here two lines will branch out - one route will run west to connect with the Oresund Railway Line, while the other branch will connect to the Ystad and Trelleborg (Kontinentalbanan) lines.
