Trønderbanen R 2025 Service Planning Study

Integrated service and infrastructure planning for the Trondheim region

The Trønderbanen provides regional railway service in the Trondheim area of Norway. The Norwegian Railway Directorate wants to increase service to meet growing transport demand, but increasing service is difficult because many sections of the line are single-track, and Trønderbanen trains share tracks with long-distance passenger and freight trains.

Trenolab is assisting BaneNOR testing the Step 1 and Step 2 of the new timetable of the Trønderbanen R 2025, with a pre-determined set of infrastructure improvements. The testing process consisted of developing a microscopic simulation model and using it to help create and evaluate future timetables that met the BaneNOR infrastructure improvements.

Our tasks:

  • Operations analysis
  • Timetable refinement
  • Infrastructure planning
  • Microscopic simulation model development
  • Microscopic simulation model calibration
  • Microscopic stochastic simulation
  • 2021/01 - 2021/04
  • Norway
  • Bane NOR
  • Integrated Service and Infra Planning
  • TRENOplus, trenissimo, TRENOanalysis
