Norsk Jernbanedrift (NJD) has entered into a contract with NCC for the construction of the railway-related infrastructure on the stretch Venjar – Eidsvoll North, part of the Norwegian InterCity project. The contract is approximately NOK 300m, and is the largest in NJD’s history.
Head of NJD’s construction division, Kjell Myhr comments: “The contract is a testament to our abilities. We have focused on selected projects where we can utilize our overall expertise, and this project fits us very well.”

The stretch from Venjar to Eidsvoll North is nine kilometers and comprises about four kilometers of new track parallel to existing track, and five kilometers of new double track. NJD will be responsible for the works related to track, contact lead, electro, signal and power supply.

Acting CEO, Jan Erik Aas comments: “The contract Venjar – Eidsvoll North will give NJD an all-time-high order back log, reason for continued optimism and a good foundation for achieving our ambitious growth targets.”
