Railway stretch in Buskerud closed due to rail buckling

The Darbu-Kongsberg stretch on Sørlandsbanen is closed for traffic caused by rail buckling.


Bane Nor  states that they are working to correct the fault, but they do not know how long it will take. NSB is working on organizing alternative transport past the area.

Rail buckling occurs when the steel in rails expands due to heat.
