Latest news about the Bergen Light Rail


Lately there has been big discussion about where or which way the Bergen Light Rail is going to Åsane. But last week they finally came with a solution. Last week, the members of Høyre, who are a part of the city council, unanimously decided that they would vote for an expansion of the Bergen Light Rail through a tunnel from Kjøttbasaren to Slakterhustomten.

17th of June the Bergen city council are going to have extraordinary meeting to discuss the layout of the track. Picture: The orange line is the new suggestion. The blue line was the earlier suggestion, but it was outvoted by the citizens of Bergen because of Bryggen.

A Visit Form Germany

This week we had a lot of fun with the German students form HHS in Hamburg. We visited many different places in Bergen, which also has been a good experience for us in Bergen.  My group took Bybanen form the city centre to Lagunen on the way we visited “Bystasjonen”,”Florida”,”Sletten”,”Fantoft” and ”Nesttun”. We learned that all these stations on the light rail is planned very well and that there are many reasons for their positions like schools, work places and of course housing.

The other Excursion day (Wednesday) we took the bus to Åsane. First we had a walk in the city to look at the building and architecture. We also saw one of Bergen´s most famous tourist attraction “Bryggen” here we presented one of the most discussed questions at the moment: Should the light rail go over “Bryggen”? Than we took the bus to Åsane where we looked at some more buildings. Like IKEA and the “EXPERT” building. Which both are very special for Bergen.

On Thursday the German students got a taste of typical Norwegian culture, mountain trip. They went up the mountain “Ulriken” which is the highest mountain in Bergen, so is can be challenging to walk up but the German students managed. They came home on Friday afternoon, and then we all were tired and ready for the weekend.

In the weekend we all got together and had a lot of fun. On Sunday all the girls had a movies night, which were vey cozy. 

On Monday we started to write our reports, which included the time we were in Hamburg.
