Mai 2019 | Alexej von Glasenapp, Ryan Stolpmann, Philipp Nachbaur

Light rail in the city of Bergen (“Bybanen” in Norwegian) is very successful. Its most recent expansion, the new line to the airport in Flesland, opened on April 22, 2017, establishing a connection with the Bergen city center. Adhering to the innovative open-city concept, a ballastless track system was used for new stops and for the airport terminal platform.
