StockholmSubwaystoRy #112 – Rågsved
Stockholm Subway with stoRy touRs
Hello everyone and welcome to our first story in October! Today we are going to present to you Rågsved. Fancy a trip in the southern Stockholm?
The station was opened in November 1959 in the district with the same name. Nowadays is part of the T19 green line in the subway network. Northbound here is Högdalen, while southbound is followed by Hagsätra.
Rågsved is an open-air station. There is only one entrance to its large platform which offers a fantastic view over the neighborhood. Here you will also realize that there are two tracks, one for each way.
Serving a residential area, at more than eight kilometers away from Slussen, the station gets visited by almost 6.000 people on regular working day.
The artistic decorations here were made by Björn Selder and installed in 1983. His work, a bronze sculpture, pictures, according to its name, a green bird.
