About the project

Bane NOR is planning the construction of 10 km of double-track from Drammen to Kobbervikdalen and from Drammen to Gulskogen, as part of the ongoing modernization of the Vestfold Line. The project is complex, with extensive groundwork and substructure works, multidisciplinary technical railways works, and a number of demanding construction phases. The construction works are split into three main contracts.

UDK 01 - Rock tunnel and open stretches

The scope of work includes the 6-kilometre double track rock tunnel, the tunnel approach and the open stretches connecting to the existing Kobbervikdalen track. Tracks and other railway engineering installations are not included in the contract. Bane NOR has awarded the contract to Veidekke Entreprenør AS.

UDK 02 - Concrete tunnel and soil tunnel

The scope of work includes a "cut and cover" concrete tunnel from the branch towards the Vestfold line from Drammen. This tunnel is built with an open construction pit. The concrete tunnel passes into a soil tunnel built in loose deposists. Bane NOR has awarded the contract to Veidekke Entreprenør AS.
