Staffanstorpsbanan - En studie om lönsamheten för att upprusta Staffanstorpsbanan för trafikering

Hultenberg, Dag and Ascard, Felicia (2018)
Abstract
The purpose of the report is to study whether it is economically profitable to
start operate traffic on the Staffanstorp Line, the railway between Staffanstorp
and Malmö. Also what resources and measures that are required will be
studied. The activities that have been carried out are a literature study, a visit to the
Staffanstorp Line and several calculations in form of cost estimates and costbenefit
analysis. The report describes how the Staffanstorp Line status today is, which critical
points that exist and how they should be addressed in order to carry out
appropriate traffic on the track. The result shows that upgrading the Staffanstorp Line to working order will
cost SEK 771 million. The estimated travel time between Staffanstorp to... (More)

appropriate traffic on the track. The result shows that upgrading the Staffanstorp Line to working order will
cost SEK 771 million. The estimated travel time between Staffanstorp to
Malmö would be 9 minutes. According to the cost-benefit analysis this project has a negative result, with a
cost-benefit ratio of -0,06. However, given that railway projects usually have a
negative cost-benefit ratio and in this case a ratio very close to zero, we
consider that the possibility of the Staffanstorp Line should be investigated
further. (Less)
