Work in progress at the airport
Stockholm Arlanda is preparing for the future.
Blasting work to affect the access road to Terminal 5 during the period November 11 – March 20
The closures will take place at 9:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The aim is for the closures to be less than two minutes. We encourage anyone arriving at Terminal 5 by car or bus at the times noted above to be at the airport well in advance since traffic queues may form.
Blasting work at the site will be under way from November 11 to March 20. Since the danger zone for blasting will extend across the Arlandaleden access road and the walkway from the P57 car park to the terminal, road blocks and flag guards will stop drivers and pedestrians at times when blasting is under way.
Impact on car and bus traffic
For car and bus traffic, closures are expected to be less than 2 minutes, but since queues may form, we encourage everyone travelling to Terminal 5 to allow plenty of extra time in conjunction with the times noted above.
Impact on pedestrians
For pedestrians, the closures will be somewhat longer than for cars and buses since the route between the flag guards must be checked to make sure no one is in the area when blasting is under way. Pedestrians will therefore be stopped before the road is closed to car and bus traffic.
No road closures during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays
The period of time and specific times for closing the Arlandaleden access road were chosen to minimise the impact on passengers and the airport. There will be no closures during the airport’s heaviest traffic period before Christmas. The last closures of Arlandaleden will be on Wednesday, December 18. The closures will then resume after New Year’s, on Tuesday,
Groundworks at Terminal 5 to affect aircraft parking stands
Passengers flying out of the gates affected will therefore travel by bus to their plane. This work is a preventive measure to ensure the bearing capacity of the surfaces the plane is parked on.
July 1 – October 30
During this time, passengers flying out of the following gates will travel by bus to their plane: 4, 6, 8, F29, F31 and for part of the time Stand 10.
At check-in, you will be informed that you will travel by bus to the plane. This will also be indicated on traffic signs after the security checkpoint.
It is important that you arrive well in advance at the gate and for pre-boarding the bus so that the plane can depart as scheduled.
