Abstract [en]

This study examines population changes before and after the inauguration of the railway Svealandsbanan 1997 in Eskilstuna Municipality, Sweden. The study’s approach consists of multiple interviews with informants active in Södermanland. In addition, statistics from Statistics Sweden (SCB) has been used to illustrate changes in demographics, commuting and employment rates over the years presented in figures.

Findings shows that Eskilstuna has had a significant population growth after the introduction of railway line Svealandsbanan replacing the previously existing railway. Every year since 1999 statistics shows that Eskilstuna has experienced a positive net migration despite earlier of years struggling with population decline.

Svealandsbanan has created extensive developmental effects of the municipality including a large increase of commuters between Eskilstuna and Stockholm which has been enabled thanks to a reduced travel time. Employment rate shows a breaking point that the year after installation of the railway a shift has been made making it more people in Eskilstuna that are employed than unemployed.
