National implementation plan

The Sweden National Implementation Plan (NIP) was delivered in 2022. It is partially compliant with the ERTMS European Deployment Plan, because it includes some dates that are beyond 2030, for example, the Malmö – Trelleborg line is planned by 2033.

According to the Sweden NIP:

  • Sweden will decommission its Class B system line by line. In the most optimistic scenario, the Class B system will be phased out by 2035.
  • The Sweden NIP does not indicate the ERTMS level planned to be deployed.
