Celebrating 2021 Year of Rail: monthly highlight on Bane NOR
The Norwegian railway is on track towards a new future!
From being mechanical and manual, it is becoming high-tech and digital. Bane NOR, the Norwegian Rail Infrastructure Manager, is at the forefront of this development. In 2022 Bane NOR will open the first lines with the new digital signalling system in operation.
Increasingly more Norwegians travel by train. As the cities grow, more people depend on public transportation. At the same time people’s climate awareness increases and travelling by railway becomes a much easier choice. Over the next decades, digitalisation will completely disrupt the Norwegian railway. With new technology, Bane NOR develops a railway that is more punctual, more reliable, and more affordable to maintain. This will benefit our customers – both the train companies and the travellers.
