Reference Sheet UHN Holm – Nykirke

On the Vestfoldbanen line, Jernbaneverket built a new double track section between Holm and Nykirke. In the northern part, there was an interface to the existing double track section on Sande, and in the south the new line ended on Nykirke station with interface towards single track towards Tønsberg. Total length of the new double track was 14.2 km. A total of 12.4 km. of the line was built in a tunnel comprising Holmestrand station and adjacent line sections. The signalling system for the new section was delivered by Thales - ESTW L90 5, a class-B Interlocking with optical signals. The scope included necessary modifications on the Ebilock-950 Interlocking from Bombardier on the existing Sande part of the line. The new double track section was commissioned in November 2016.   prorail AS Contribution in the project (jan. 2014-MaY 2017): Site Manager, signalling:
