On Saturday, the train section between Drammen and Asker will begin closure for six weeks. The stretch is among several train lines that will be closed while maintenance work is in progress.

The maintenance work will also affect the stretch between Skøyen and Drammen, as well as the Østfold railway wrote Aftenposten newspaper.

In total, 14,000 train departures will be canceled as a result of maintenance work this summer show figures from Vy.

About 200,000 passengers will be affected.

Vy’s Communications Manager, Gina Scholz, said that, on average, 500 buses will transport train passengers who are affected.

“We need 16 buses to replace a full train at rush hour, but we have enough buses to deal with this situation” said Scholz.
