Norway: ERTMS implementation

Norway’s National Rail Administration Norway (Jernbaneverket) is committed to carrying out the ERTMS implementation in the Norwegian railway network.
According to the National ERTMS Implementation Plan of Jernbaneverket, in 2030 a description of high-level signalling renewal program and implementation of ERTMS Level 2 baseline 3 will be completed.
The planned sequence and timing for implementation are aligned with several factors:
• The age of the existing signalling systems
• The need to eliminate railway sections without interlocks
• The need to avoid “islands” with class B systems
• A desire for the initial deployment of the new TMS
The total cost of implementing the ERTMS program in Norway is estimated approximately in 1.7 billion and 2.2 billion euros.
