Metro passengers are referred to trams and buses, as Sporveien will use the Easter holidays to upgrade the city center tunnel in Oslo.

From Wednesday, March 31 to Monday, April 5, the metro through central Oslo will not run, as Sporveien will be performing necessary maintenance work in the subway tunnel, Sporveien stated on Monday.

Specifically, the metro traffic will not run between Majorstuen and Grønland, as well as between Carl Berners plass and Sinsen.

Routes referred travelers to various trams and buses on these routes during Easter.

The infrastructure in the tunnel will be upgraded due to more passengers and more frequent departures.

Upgrading infrastructure

“With the work, we will extend the life of the current infrastructure, ensure a more stable metro operation and facilitate increased capacity in the years to come,” project manager Hilde Ulvik in Sporveien noted.

In 2019, the metro transported 120 million passengers. That amounts to about 400,000 daily trips spread over five lines, all of which pass through the same tunnel. 

Sporveien started a major upgrade project in 2017, which is scheduled to be completed in May 2021.

The metro will run as normal again from Tuesday, April 6.
