Winter chaos in train traffic - Stockholm News

Swedish railways have been poorly maintained for a long time and a political battle has broken out about who is to blame. When the opposition attacks the government for cutting down on the funding for maintaining railroads, the government replies that they still allocate more money for the purpose than the previous Social democratic government did. Both parts are right. The government has now abolished the SEK 600 million extra funding they gave to the maintenance each year during last electoral term, while the ordinary funding is still higher than before 2006.
