Railway Stations - Layout Manual
In 2012, the Swedish Transport Administration published the report ‘Railway Stations - Planning
Manual’ as a first step in the development and dissemination of current knowledge pertaining to the
planning and design of railway stations. This report sheds light on the subject and is addressed to both
the Administration’s own employees and other stakeholders involved in station-related work.
The report you are currently reading, ‘Railway Stations – Layout Manual’, is an ‘expansion’ that aims
to provide Swedish Transport Administration employees with increased insights and opportunities
to promote quality in the design of the parts of the total station environment for which the Swedish
Transport Administration is responsible. Quality requirements and the outline design of a station’s
fixtures and structural components are described in more detail in a third report, ‘Railway Stations –
Design Profile Manual’.
