The Løvstakk project is approaching the final stages of construction. After the successful and timely handover of the light rail tunnel to Bybanen Utbygging in the beginning of February 2022, the major focus area of the last few months has been the pedestrian and bicycle tunnel running parallel to the light rail tunnel.
The last blast on the Skullerud tunnel took place exactly at 1400 on January 13th. Of course there were a gathering at the final blast, where also the mountain trolls got their shot of cognac in order to be happy.
In Norway, Bergen is also known as Syvfjellsbyen (City of Seven Mountains). Through one of these mountains, Løvstakken, which is 477 meters high, a line is set to run for Bergen’s light rail system, the Bybanen, as part of a constantly expanding network. The expertise of the tunneling crew from Marti AS Norway is in demand in this project.
The 110 m long access tunnel was fully
excavated in September 2019 and the teams could start the two faces of
the main excavation blasting towards both north and south.
The entire Ryfast project with a total of three tunnels was opened on 22.04.2020. Including the Solbakk tunnel which was built by Marti AS.
