The Drammenbanen opened again after the fire

Drammenbanen is opened again between Asker and Drammen after a fire in some masts inside the Lierå tunnel.

 You still have to count on delays and settings, says Bane Nor at her Bane Nor .

All trains on the stretch were set on Tuesday evening indefinitely after a fire occurred on some of the material inside the 10-kilometer-long tunnel. The fire must have occurred in the 19th century near the Asker side of the tunnel.

– The fire is off. Crews are sent in to survey the extent of the damage, Bane Nor reported on Twitter around 9pm.

– There are two tracks inside the tunnel, and it was the driver of a train in the other track who reported when he saw the hint of fire, said press guard Ragnhild Aagesen in Bane Nor to NTB.

NSB also writes on its website that travelers must count on delays and settings in train traffic.

– There will be buses between Drammen and Asker, which will also go as usual at all stations, said press manager Åge-Christoffer Lundeby in NSB on Tuesday evening.
