The Kolsås line opened to traffic yesterday. A few more pics:

Let's hope the clocks are not indicative of the reliability of the line:

This brutalist open concrete pit is not really to my liking. Reminds me of the stations along the Orange Line in Boston, such as Ruggles.

I'm not a fan of all the concrete myself, but at least it has some esthetic qualities to soften things up, unlike that example from Boston which appears to have no redeeming qualities.

Another Løren-line milestone was reached today when breaktrough was made. A small ceremony marked the occation.

The Løren-line is still on route, planned to be opened spring 2016.

Future station hall at Løren:

Here's a render of how the station hall eventually will turn out:

Yes, it is a genuine render from the PT-company. Remind you Løren T will have two exits, the main entrance towards Peter Møllers vei (shown in your older render) + one smaller towards an unnamed housing street that is the one shown in my render above.
How the whole station apperance will be is not quite clear, but the Kristin Jarmund plan is still on board to my knowledge.


Some techincal renders from 2010:

Here is a new proposal to give Oslo more tunnel capacity through the city centre. Both trains and metros needs more capacity to have high enough frequency.

The proposal is to build a hybrid like in Copenhagen, Paris and Berlin with a S-train in a tunnel through the city centre. This s-train will have many transfer station with metros and regional trains.

Out of those alternatives I think alternative 1 is the most intereresting. Alternatives 2 and 3 will parallel existing (and planned) metro lines, while alternative 1 will give new areas of the city such as Ullevål and Sagene/Bjølsen rapid transit access both to the city center and Økern, Groruddalen (and possibly Lillestrøm?). The Ulllevål and Sagene areas are now served by slow trams and city buses.

With alternative 1 it looks like they intend to utilize the already existing Alnabanen (Sinsen/Grefsen-Alnabru), which is currently only used by freight trains.

The above mentioned proposal is just one of several. Ruter, Jernbaneverket and Statens vegvesen have been looking at ways of developing public transport in Oslo and have narrowed it down to four "concepts". There are variations within each concept. They will be submitting a final recommendation to the Ministry of transport in May.

Concept 1 will have no new T-bane or mainline rail tunnels, but instead develops the tram and bus system. A couple of bus lines replaced by tram, new bus terminals and dedicated lanes/streets. It appears that they have only included this proposal because the Ministry of Transport specifically asked for it.



Concept 2 will build new T-bane tunnels in the city center but no new tunnels for commuter/regional trains. This particular proposal is well known by now:



Here is another concept 2 alternative with two new lines drawn in: One Tøyen-Nybrua-St.Olavs plass-Nationaltheatret-Frogner-Majorstuen and one line further North via Grünerløkka and Bislett.



Concept 3 is the T-bane and S-bane concept (as posted by Stadiums above). In this map a new east-west railway tunnel is also drawn in blue.



Another variation of concept 3:



Concept 4 will have new T-bane and new railway tunnel for commuter and regional trains:

The first variation of concept 3 is definitely my favorite. The areas inside the T-bane ring need more high capacity public transport.

I 100 % agree!
We desperately need higher capacity rail running public transportation in the area between the city center and Ringen. Articulated buses don't cope with the demand anymore.

I don't like the T-bane solution for that one since some lines will lose direct access to the city center. I'd prefer the second T-bane/S-bane alternative.

On a number of occasions this winter, T-bane train horns have got stuck, with the driver helpless to turn them off (it requires tech assistance). So trains have on several occasions gone on for several km with horns blasting. Here's a video from Grønland station with a horn blaring non-stop.

Well, that's annoying. The drivers will have PTSD by the time they finish their route!

As i undestood this, all boils down to that they can't have ear protection for the drivers(don't ask me why). They are able to shut it off themselves, but since it's so loud they can't do it.
