The companies will supply the Rheda 2000 slab track system for the project, which infrastructure manager Bane Nor is undertaking to increase capacity on the line.

“Our modular, reliable and well-proven Rheda 2000 system is predestined for state-of-the-art railway infrastructure projects, such as the track work construction in modern tunnels,” says Rail.One chief sales officer, Mr Torsten Bode. “The ballastless track system significantly reduces annual maintenance costs and increases the track availability.

“We believe in the Nordic railway market’s large potential for innovative, sustainable and reliable track technologies and in cooperation with Azvi to would like to make this project a showcase and a slab track reference, first of all in Norway, and secondly in the Nordic market as a whole.”
