DRM 02 Drammen stabling

Implenia has completed the rebuilding of the new turning and stabling track at Skamarken and Sundehaugen in Drammen. The rebuilding was performed in order to facilitate the phasing in of NSB's new Flirt trains and to implement the new base route model which will result in a significantly improved train service for large parts of the eastern Norway area.

Drammen stabling

Increased capacity. To meet demand in Drammen it was necessary to provide stabling for 15 sets of trains and Jernbaneverket wanted to redevelop the current stabling areas at Skamarken and Sundhaugen. The scope of the project included ground work and railway engineering works.

Skamarken. At Skamarken a total of 2800 metres of track was constructed or refurbished, parts of the overhead line system were modernised, new area lighting was installed and fencing was erected as well as the construction of four new service platforms at ground level.

Sundhaugen. The modernisations at Sundhaugen were less extensive, here parts of the railway engineering systems were replaced but the length of the tracks remains unchanged. In addition, works were carried out along the main tracks between Grønland and Kreftingsgate. Among other things, new pipe culverts were installed beneath the tracks.
