Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but Oslo is set to ban cars in the city centre by 2019.

The local line between Lysaker and Sandvika reopened today, serving the Stabekk, Høvik and Blommenholm stations. All stations will be served by line L1 (Lillestrøm-Asker/Spikkestad) as before. Additionally, lines L2 (Ski) and L21 (Moss) have been extended from Skøyen and terminate at Stabekk, which means Stabekk gets 7 trains per hour (off peak).

Høvik station. The three middle tracks will be used for reversing L2 and L21 trains and obviously will not be accessible for passengers.


Høvik station. The station received an award for the use of lighting.






Stabekk station has been rebuilt:


Blommenholm station has not received any significant upgrades:

Rolling stock-wise, some changes also come into effect today as NSB receive more new Stadler FLIRT trains. Line L1 moves from a mix of type 69s and 72s to all 72s. Line L21 moves from 72s to FLIRT type 75s (except a few rush hour trains). Line L2 will get double length 69s (6 cars) at all hours.

Type 69 and 72 on line L1:

Are any 69s taken out of service or are they all going to be used to increase capacity?

A lot of the oldest A- and B-series 69s have been retired and scrapped. These were built in the early 70s. The C-series (built late 70s) received a major upgrade some years ago and will be retained for a number of years. As will the D-series (built early/mid 80s to early 90s). The oldest D-series trains will get a minor upgrade, but as I understand these will be used in the Bergen area.

They are a great capacity. I've seen them hook three sets together for 9 car trains on somr occations. That'll leave room for 900 seated passengers, and the possibility for 500+ standing passengers.

Also. Oslo have all of its shopping malls and more closed on Sundays. So that's why they choose it. Hope this helps
The catchment area for public transport is far larger than that 560,000, you have to include the Greater Olso Region who are also part of the transport network and that gives you 1,3 million people, which puts size and scope of the network into perspective.

That post is 7 years old. We're actually about 660 000 now

My point is still valid even with 660,000 people, the network serves far more than central Oslo, hence it's size.

Off course, Oslo metro wouldn't get >300,000 daily riderships from Oslo's innh. alone.

It would be interesting to know how many people who come into Oslo from Greater Oslo use the metro network.

With the opening of Loren station in April, T-bane have a new metro map:



Number of lines reduced to 5, line 5 will travel around the southern part of loop twice, line 4 will serve Loren station and terminate at Vestli station, line 1 will terminate at Bergkrystallen station during rush hours, instead of Ellingsrudеsen station. Line 2 will operate between Osteras and Ellingsrudеsen, Line 3 - between Kolsas and Mortensrud

Is this the world's first loop-de-loop in a metro system?

http://transitmap.net/post/140690995475/oslo-2016

I've never seen something quite like this, where a whole bunch of stations are repeated. Although line 1 in Naples has a neat self-loop.

Plus is there any sign to tell the passenegers if the train is going to make a loop (via Storo) or heading straight to Sognsvann.

I would think that boards at the stations and the train itself would either say Sognsvann or Ringen. The sign on the train would change at some point. So, for the first loop coming from Grorud , it would say Ringen until perhaps Nydalen and then switch to Sognsvann. They do something similar with the current 4/6 line change.

Personally, I think this is a big improvement. The map is certainly clearer with only 5 lines and the old 4/6 was confusing for visitors.

They won't use "Ringen" any more. Instead they'll say "over Storo", according to an article in Aftenposten.

Madrid Cercanias C7 line has a similar layout, passing twice through the city center from Atocha to Chamartin. Since the terminus was moved from Chamartin to Fuente de la Mora the signage is a little bit clearer.

Nevertheless it is still confusing, especially because the Cercanias map sports some terrible topological deformations, it is often quite difficult to choose which way to go and catch the right train.

Heh, yes each redesign adds another loop. First we got a loop and then a loop-de-loop. I accept the argument that the current set-up optimises the use of one sparse resource (metro trains). It clearly doesn't optimise the use of another sparse resource (the Central Tunnel).

Speaking of which, I believe this is the current recommended proposal/wish for Oslo 2040 (orange), included "S-bane" (local train extensions) in red, regional trains in dark blue and tram lines in light blue, regional buses in green.



In earlier proposals the Fornebu line was planned as perpendicular to the Central Tunnel at Majorstuen, here it is another branch of the Røa/Østerås lines.

I can see the arguments for that too, but then Majorstuen would be the bottleneck instead of the Central Tunnel (unless Majorstuen got four tracks and three platforms). In any case a shunt along Frøen would mean that we could have a line Fornebu-Vestli not passing the Central Tunnel or the two proposed tunnels, with a route similar to today's 31 and 20 buses.

I'd also think that if the network were like this in 2040 there would be significant interest in a metro tunnel Økern-Bryn for 2050.
