Follo Line, Norway
The city of Oslo has expanded rapidly in recent years and a new transport infrastructure is needed in response to this growth. This is especially so when it comes to strengthening the link between the capital city and the Norway's southern region.
When the project is complete at the end of 2021, it will take only 11 minutes for passengers to travel the 22 km between Oslo and Ski – thanks to this new railway line that will allow trains to travel at 250 km per hour.
