All train services in east Norway will be brought to a complete stop for a couple of hours today as rail workers go on strike. These are the affected lines.

All trains in east Norway will be halted on Tuesday, June 14th due to a political strike, working life publication FriFagbevelse reports. 

Between 11am and 1pm, all trains in east Norway will be stopped as the Norwegian Railway Association and Norwegian Locomotive Manufacturers’ Association go on strike. 

The strike will affect the Gjøvik line, Bergen line, Hønefoss line and airport train. In addition, services run by SJ, VY and Go Ahead that stop on sections of the Kongsberg to Oslo, Lillehammer to Oslo and Hønefoss to Oslo lines will also be halted.

All train personnel, conductors and locomotive drivers on these routes will strike. 

Bane Nor, which operates Norway's railways, has warned that disruption and cancellations were likely to continue after the strikes end. 

“As a result of the strike, there will, unfortunately, be delays and cancelled departures also for a period after the strike has ended,” Bane Nor has advised. 

Trains will stop at the nearest station before 11am. No bus replacement service has been arranged.

A bus replacement for the disrupted services has not been organised.
