Bane-Nor have decided that the planned 23 kilometer long railway tunnel in the Ringeriksbane project will be built with one main tube with double tracks and a separate service-tunnel that runs parallel to it (as opposed to having separates tunnels for each track like in the Follobane project).

As might be known, the Norwegian passenger market will soon be opened to competition. Is there an idea of what passengers can expect from these changes?

I wonder why they transported it on the ferry Rostock-Trelleborg and not across the bridges through Denmark.


The BM73 in Haarlem, Netherlands.
Why was it transferred to Holland?

A few years ago NSB put out a tender for the refurbishment of these units. This tender was won by NedTrain, a division of the Dutch Railways.

Laying of tracks have started on the Farriseidet-Porsgrunn step (part of Vestfoldbanen).

While we are at it, here is also a video of how the new Moss station will look like. It is expected to be in use from 2024.

Also posted in the Norwegian forum

This awesome new underground station deserves some more pictures, so here's a few I took some days ago...

The entrance at Rove, by the cliff. Some 70 metres above the station and the rest of Holmestrand




The station is designed to let trains pass through at speeds up to 250km/h, so it's protected by pressure locks, like this one


The north entrance on the old station area. The landscaping is still not completed.






The concourse leading to the platforms






The platforms is accessible by stairs and elevators






continues...

North approach.

The station is located inside the 12.385 metres long Holmestrandsporten tunnel


The station hall itself is around 250 metres long, 30 metres wide and 12 metres tall




The south entrance is still not quite finished






South approach

That is a beautiful station. Very cozy and welcoming due to the shapes, colours and materials used, yet also it feels very modern.

The tunnels in the Follo line porject have received names.

The 20km main tunnel have been named Blixtunnelen.
A 1km side tunnel from Ski and onto to the Østfold line have been named Roåstunnelen.

One thing that have not been mentioned so far is that there are plans to construct another train tunnel through Oslo. This tunnel is still some time away - earliest expected completion is 2032, or 15 years into the future. 16 billion nok have been put aside for the project. Here are possible routes considered.
