Dovrebanen - Infranord's largest assignment in Norway

​In 2013, Infranord won the assignment to carry out on track and the overhead line works on the Dovre Line. The assignment is worth SEK 173.5 million and it is Infranord's largest assignment to date in Norway.

​Norway's largest infrastructure project at the moment is underway on the Dovre Line. On one of the country's most busy lines, between Oslo and Hamar, a double-track railway and a four-lane motorway totalling 60 kilometres are being built. The project, which is a collaboration between the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian National Rail Administration, aims to increase the capacity and shorten the travel times. By straightening out the link between the two districts, the travel time per section is cut by 30 minutes.
 
The project is split into three stages and Infranord's assignment is to complete the first of these. We will lay 17 kilometres of double-track on the stretch from Langset to Kleverud. The assignment includes both the track and overhead line works. The work started in summer 2013 and it will be completed in 2015. The new double track will make room for passenger trains, freight trains and future high-speed trains.
