Invensys Rail has successfully commissioned the latest phase of the Oslo Metro T-Bane signalling programme on behalf of infrastructure owner KTPAS.
This latest scheme was commissioned on 15 August 2011, and saw the opening of a two kilometre extension to the Kolsåsbanen from Jar to Bekkestua. This section will allow both trams and metro trains to run up to Bekkestua.
Invensys designed, installed and commissioned the signalling solution for both the metro and tram lines.
Based on the company’s proven WESTRACE interlocking, the project features three aspect signals for the tram and four for the metro.
WESTRACE has been an approved interlocking solution in Norway for over 15 years.
Proven in over 1,500 installations worldwide, it is an advanced computer-based, safety critical system which provides distributed intelligence and remote diagnostics facilities, as well as the potential for inexpensive future expansion.
