"The popular tourist destination the kaknäs tower is closed down to the public, writes the daily News."
"The well-known 155-meter high kaknäs tower in Gärdet in Stockholm was inaugurated in 1967 by Olof Palme, who was communications minister at the time, to serve as the länktorn for radio - and TV-broadcasting."
"Since then, it has been a tourist attraction. Now it closes it to the public."
"Already in the summer shut down the tower in a couple of weeks because of hissproblem. But the discussions on the Kaknästornets future has been going on a long time, and intensified during the summer. Now the tower has been completely turned off since the 25th of september. "
"the Decision was taken in the last week. The reason is that the investments required to keep the tower open to the public is no longer possible to justify from the Teracoms side."
"– I have no exact figures but there are huge sums of money, it's all about, " says Niklas Vange, presskommunikatör at Teracom AB, DN."
"Teracom AB is a state company which operates the Swedish terrestrial network for radio and tv, and who therefore have used the building as länktorn since the 1960s. The business will continue, but the restaurant and the souvenir shop will have to close."
