The 5.5km line between Lund Central station and ESS research facility in Brunnshög was completed in December and originally due to open in August, but delays with the construction of the maintenance depot forced the opening date to be postponed.
Skanska was awarded a SKr 710m ($US 7m) contract to construct the line, which will connect the centre of Lund with the growing district of Brunnshög in the northeast. Work started on the project in March 2017.
Around 40,000 people currently commute to and from Lund, and the line will provide a 15 minute journey time between Lund Central and Brunnshög with each LRV providing capacity for 200 passengers.
CAF is due to deliver the first of seven Urbos 100 LRVs in May, with the fleet to be tested on the line during the summer.
Services will operate between 05.00 and 24.00 Sunday – Thursday, and between 05.00 and 02.00 on Friday and Saturday, with a headway of seven minutes during peak periods and 20 minutes off-peak.
