Oslo has a extensive metro network but, compared with others scandinavian capitals like Stockholm seems quite poor.

Please try to avoid possible city vs. city statements. There is a lot of rivalry between Scandinavian/Nordic cities.

How frequently does this line operate? I assume the frequency must not be too high or it would disrupt traffic flow on the street..

Is this really true? I'm surprised to hear of such rivalry.

Examples are Holmenkollen, Vigeland sculpture park, Munch Museum and Viking ship museum.
Hmmm.. that means I took the unpopular way and went to Vigeland sculpture park on foot (together with a group of other students). It was a really interesting experience, actually, that even helped to improve the image of the city in my mind.

Well.. to some point, yes. However, internet is the only place where the one can recognise that more obviously.

Every 15 minutes, so 8 trains pass through per hour. None of the streets the line crosses at grade have a lot of traffic though.

Double that when there's events at Holmenkollen, though��



To FabriFlorence, I don't think Oslo's metro is that poor, even if downtown coverage leaves a lot to be desired. Compared to Stockholm it is small, compared to Copenhagen and Helsinki not that small at all.

One issue with that intersection in the pic is that it's made in a way that each platform are on opposite ends and before the crossing. This results in much longer waiting time for cars and pedestrians. But I guess this solution is due to safety reason?

Since we were discussing AnsaldoBreda in the Swedish section, how has the performance of AnsaldoBreda's trams effected Oslo's public transport=

I don't know what other to say than telling you the whole SL95 was and is a disaster. After less than 10 years, the whole series has litterally rusted to death. Capacity-whise they are super, and have spared us for new metro links/traffic knots in downtown, but the time in service is too low, and thry wear and tear on our tram tracks.

How long will it take to replace them? Can the trams be used until then or are there enough older models to replace all AB trams?

It will take 4-5 years. They've just started the process of buying new trams, and initially the point was to replace SL79. SL95 should work till then, but as you probably have heard, all are now in the workshop, and has to stay there over summer.

Hopefully a tender is to be put out by the end of the year. If so, then new trams should start delivering in 2016 and the order be completed in 2017 or possible 2018.

Oslo Tramway need 59 trams to operate the current time schedule, and there are just 40 SL79s. So in short the SL95s are needed. The SL79 are in pretty good condition and can run for 10 more years if needed, but the SL95s are ready for the graveyard. I'm sure they can get some more years out of the SL95 though, after fixing them now, but remains to be seen how long until they disintegrates completely by rust.

In my world the only choice is to order 100 brand spanking new trams and retire all the current ones. Asap!

Possible look of the eastern entrance to the Ensjø metro station. If this plans go through, then it will be built into the base of a new 17 story tower. I don't know if this render is supposed to represent the final design or just the general volumes - I hope for the later as I think it looks rather bland.
