The city council is holding an urgent press conference in Fornebubanen

Raymond Johansen (LP), City Councilor for Environment and Transportation Siren Stave (MDG) and City Councilor for Education and Knowledge Sunniva Holmås Eidsvoll (SV) will attend the press conference to be held in Oslo City Hall at 6.30pm on Monday.

The summons came after the three city council parties discussed the matter at group meetings on Monday afternoon.

NRK was the first to report the new contribution from landowners all the way to Fornebubanen. Dagbladet and Aftenposten report the same thing, and NTB is receiving confirmation from a central source that the sum is correct.

The background is that the Labor Party in Oslo in May came up with six demands that had to be met if it wanted to support the construction of a railroad. They believe that Oslo bears a great deal of financial responsibility – and one of the requirements was that developers should contribute more.

Now the additional contributions from landowners will amount to 2.1 billion crowns, which means the total amount from landowners comes to between 4 and 5 billion crowns, according to NRK.

It can have an effect on the desire to complete the project.

After several cost cracks in the billionth category, there was a risk that the track could be scrapped. While the cost framework was first estimated at NOK 16.2 billion, the latest preliminary figure is NOK 26.4 billion for the roughly eight-kilometre section of the metro between Magorsten and Fornebu.
