The escalators are being renovated
From January 21, and about three weeks ahead, the escalators are being renovated at the station since it is time for a technical review. There will be 3-4 working days per escalator when it is out of use.
There will be reference signs and information to guide you to alternative routes.
Improved lighting will be installed
Between March 2 and August 3 LED-lighting will be installed in the central hall. Scaffolding will be constructed along the walls in four separate phases.
The waiting room can still be used as intended but some benches might have to be moved.
The scaffolding will be placed on the tactile paths, so temporary tactile paths will be installed. After all the work is done the tactile paths will be restored to their usual positions.

A living station through history
Stockholms Centralstation has linked together the mainlines in Sweden since 1871 and has been the hub of Swedish rail services. It is the most central location in Sweden and the largest station in the country in terms of area, departures and number of travellers. For certain travellers, it is the gateway to the world, for others a regular part of their everyday lives. Stockholm Centralstation has always been a very vibrant place and in line with different social currents and population growth, the station has been expanded, modernised and added to.
Even so, many of the architectural characteristics and artistic adornments have been preserved. Today's station is therefore a thrilling place where old meets new. The station is now home to both express trains and slow food and the royal waiting room stands wall to wall with American fast food outlets.
