I'm getting quite excited when I thinking about the new metrotunnel that will fill the emptu space inside the ring. No doubt that it's needed besides to add more capacity.

Well, that tunnel is more about releaving certain tram lines. If we wanted to fill the gap in the middle of the ring, we should convert some buslines into tramlines. 20, 21, 37 and 54 are all amongst the most used busses in the city (only 31 [+23] have more passengers)

The tunnel is first and foremost to releave the metro system. IMO it's a very good layout that will bring flexibility to a reasonable cost.

If they were to only add capacity to the tram network, I believe they could to this without building a new metrotunnel. They could get more, better and bigger trams and build it after bybanestandard.

I agree, I just though your previous post insinuated that the new metro tunnel would cover blank spots in the map I posted.

Her is an example with the new Fornebu line and metro tunnel. It will fill empety spaces give many new stations with transer tram/train/metro and add capacity to the system.

Siemens delivers final metro train to Oslo
13 FEB, 2014



The final MX300 metro train has been delivered to Oslo, taking the Norwegian capital’s fleet of Siemens trains to 115.

Since placing an initial order for 33 vehicles in 2003, Oslo’s public transport operator, Sporveien, has placed follow up orders in 2005, 2008 and 2010.

The metros, which have a maximum operating speed of 80 km/h, have all been built in Vienna and have undergone a comprehensive testing programme to prepare them for the harsh Norwegian winters in Oslo where temperatures can fall to minus 25 degrees Celsius.

Excellent! Thanks for sharing.
These additional 33 vehicles are mandatory to allow the metro network to handle the travel needs of the rapid growing population. Next out would be to order a similar number or vehicles for the tram network.

Eight number concept





Here is the new eight-number concept in Oslo. Oslos population is expected to recach 800.000 inhabitants by 2030(600.000 today) and the metrpolitian area will reach 1.6 million(1.2 million today). Today there are 28 trains pr. hour through the "strained city-tunnel" which is the bottleneck in the system. The tunnel is also a condition for further expansion (fornebu and a-hus line).

The plan is to have the the eight-number finished by 2030 and plans should be complete by 2015 and construction started. If oslo gets the 2022 winter olympics the constuction can be accelerated and finished by 2022.

What is to stop the planners to take some of the money saved by not having an Oslo Olympics and use it to have the new tunnel finished by 2022 anyway, or is that too rational?

Politicians I guess.
A potential Olympics will be funded by the state (government), while the metro tunnel is all in the hands of Oslo municipality. Different wallets that is...

It is a great fact that Oslo metro has converted from some suburban railway lines & tram lines !!!!!

There are another unique fact that part of the metro system is also served by tram system!! We can't even emagine it in Kolkata, my city..

I heard third rail could be affected by snowfall, but how Oslo's metro is running in winter, on surface portion, which serves outiide areas on at grade? even with level corossing section, with heavy snow fall?

With heavy snow fall there can be delays or disruptions, but it's fairly rare. They run special trains to remove snow. Switches are heated to melt snow and ice. I don't think level crossings present any particular problem with regards to snow.

Oslo's metro-system uses a bottom-contact third-rail system. Combined with diligent maintenance during winters, it really isn't problematic.

Further, the trains have their power-collectors distributed along the train, so as long as one car has a connection, the train can still move. There are back-up batteries as well, but those are primarily only for yard-operation.

– Trikken er uten tvil det beste transportmiddelet i Oslo

– Det er for mange alternative transportalternativer inn til Oslo sentrum. Tilbudet er på mange måter for godt. Passasjerene har for mange alternativer, noe som gir lav effektivitet, sier Kuhn.

Manglende prioritering mellom kollektivalternativene fører ifølge ham til for mange vognkilometer per år, men for få passasjerer per vognkilometer.

Kuhn tar for seg hvert enkelt kollektivtilbud, og har forslag til endring hos både tog, buss, t-bane og trikk.

– Når det kommer til tog bør infrastrukturen bygges om slik at ikke alle linjer går via Oslo sentrum. Det er helt unødvendig at de som bor i øst, men jobber i vest skal måtte kjøre via Oslo sentralstasjon, og motsatt, sier han.
Synopsis: Opinion of external expert is too many empty busses and trains, too much traffic goes by the centre, more busses and trains in the east where the traffic is, less busses in the city core, metro lines are too long, trams should dominate city core and have precedence over other traffic.
