Region Skåne suing Swedish government for millions for intoducing border and ID controls

Scania transport company Skånetrafiken is seeking reimbursement from the Swedish state related to the ID and border controls between Denmark and Sweden that have caused delays across the Øresund Bridge and led to a fall in its passenger numbers.

The Swedish government has already allocated 139 million Swedish kronor to compensating travel companies such as Skånetrafiken and Denmark’s DSB.

However, Skånetrafiken now wants the Swedish state to cover an anticipated loss of 60 million kronor related to fewer tickets sales.

In a separate case, a group of 565 Øresund commuters are suing the Swedish government, claiming that the controls are restricting their rights.
