I spoke a few pages back about the planned upgrade of Ekebergbanen where one alternative was to put the current line through a tunnel in the Ekeberg hillside. Well tunnel turned out to be preferred alternative by Bymiljøetaten and this is the one that they are now going further with. Well actually they have gone further with it for some time now as the plan was put out on public hearing in February, but I just was too lazy to post it here. This will be the tram network of Oslos first underground stretch if it gets built. It might not be the last though as the proposed extension of Ekebergbanen to Hauketo also includes an tunneled alternative.







But it will mean that this view could be history:

Why the access tunnel in the plans for the Ekeberg tram tunnel? The tunnel is fairly short, so I don't think they need it for safety purposes. (I had asked this question a few pages back, with no answer).

It is intended as a escape tunnel but they have not decided if they are going to build it yet. They only include in the regulation and planning process in case it is needed, but they have also deemed the safety satisfactory without this escape tunnel if some other safety measurements are taken (like laying a anti-slip surface path in tunnel that people can walk on).

Two drawings showing the possible future situation at both tunnel ends.

The nortern, lower end closest to the city.


The southern, higher end at Ekeberg with the new Ekebergparken tram stop.

A test project with autonomous electric buses will be introduced into the city Mars next year. The plan is to have 10 to 20 autonomous buses in service that you will be able to order trips from through the Ruter mobile app.

It is worth noting that Storgata will go through similar style upgrade which have not been presented so far in this thread.

Construction start is expected winter 2018, but I'm not sure if that means in the first part or in the later part of the year though. But given that it is expected to be completed by 2020 then I think it is most likely the former.

Two clips I come across showing possible solutions for the Bjerke and Tonsenhagen Torg stops at the planned Tonsenhagen tram line. I'm not sure they are new but I have at least not noted them before and I know that they have not been presented in this thread. The proposed line have been delayed due to concerns about the pedestrian safety along Riksvei 4.

Bjerke.


Tonsenhagen torg.

The Bjørvika tram line will open for regular traffic on August 14th. Both line 17 and 18 will get Bjørvika as their terminus.

A picture showing the new tracks in Akersgata. The lines in both directions are merged into one due to the tight curvature at the corner towards Prinsens gate.
