The Norwegian Parliament has decided to build the Northern Railway - experts associate this with military interests

41

It became known that the Labor Party of Norway came up with a parliamentary initiative to implement an infrastructure project to extend the Transnorwegian railway to the northern regions of the country. The Norwegian Parliament (Storting) approved this initiative.


On its basis, several railway branches will be laid in Norway, including branches to the cities of Harstad and Tromsø.

It is worth noting that the Norwegian railway system is very specific. To a greater extent, it is "sharpened" for the railway connection of Norway with neighboring countries (Sweden and Denmark), rather than for internal transportation. Railways in the south of the country are actively exploited, and the directions to the north remain for a long time either without this kind of communication lines, or such tracks were completely dismantled in the 1970s-80s.

Norway railway scheme. Blue lines - decommissioned or historical branch


Cecile Teresa Murcet of the Labor Party:

There should be no doubt that we are striving to implement the Northern Norwegian Railway. However, it is obvious that no one will be ready to lay the tracks tomorrow. This is a long term perspective. We must solve transport problems in a comprehensive manner.

Against this background, Norway is increasing its military spending. So, earlier an agreement was signed with the United States on the deployment of American military bases in the country on a permanent basis. Prior to this, US troops in Norway could only be stationed in Norway at Norwegian military installations for a limited period of time.

In this regard, experts have suggested that it was decided to build the Northern Norwegian Railway to a greater extent in military interests. So, the United States plans to use the Olavsvern military facility about 15 km from Tromsø to its advantage, and it was to this city that the Norwegian parliamentarians decided to build the railway. For a long time, the military base in Olavsvern (which is less than 400 km to the borders of Russia) was not used for its intended purpose.

Military cargo will be able to be transported by rail to the north of the country. A super-long railway corridor of NATO countries will also appear: from the aforementioned Tromsø (Norway) to Denmark, Germany and other countries through "neutral" Sweden. In this regard, Sweden will increasingly be drawn into NATO's military transport infrastructure.

          No, it really does not prove anything ... It's just that a 36-year-old deputy without a husband and children walks around the city with calls to go to the "northern pride" ...

          Judging by your comment, it's also normal for you to come out with an LGBT flag and a corresponding "war paint" on your face, "but that doesn't mean anything" laughing

            In Norway, the average age of brides is 31,5 years. I don’t know how much Teresa has, but she looks younger, I think she hasn’t met the “husband of her dreams” yet ... it also happens. laughing
            walks around the city with calls to go to the "northern pride" ...

            Fashion. It will pass. In the 60s, hippies went around and called "make love, not war." fellow

            Judging by your interpretation of my comment, you are being pulled subconsciously ...
            So that there are no misunderstandings, I explain - neither I nor my children and grandchildren go under such a flag. And whoever wants, let him go. For some it is lgbt, for others it is a rainbow. For me, a rainbow. yes

      It is unlikely that echelons with Chinese tanks will go along the BAM in the direction of Europe, but along the Norwegian railway echelons with American equipment in the direction of Russia can easily go. winked

          Yes, fullness to you. The Germans also wanted to end the war before the winter, but it turned out just like that. Do you think mattresses think differently? They have all the equipment painted in sand. Interests can be somewhat broader than just wrestling in the adjacent territory.
          Taking into account the growing muddiness along the North Sea Route, the Norwegian piece of iron will become part of the mattress logistics for the material support of its contingent, which will be involved in this direction.

    This is a specific country, in each bay they have a convenient port, and the railway road is a tunnel on a tunnel. The coastline is cut to the extent by skerries that they managed to build a tunnel for ships. It is easier to transfer troops by sea, but by rail. insane enough to ruin relations with us.

    Dear Authors! You write: "In this regard, experts have suggested that they decided to build the Northern Norwegian Railway in a greater degree in military interests." And who are not named experts and where are they from? In Harstad, what and whose military facilities already exist or are about to appear?
    From my native Severodvinsk to the border with Finland, about 450 km. A new road bridge across the Nikolskoye estuary of the Northern Dvina, which is being built from the mainland to the Yagry Island, judging by the logic of such experts, is undoubtedly evidence that the aggressive Russian Federation will accelerate, expand and deepen the repair of its nuclear submarines at the Zvezdochka CS. And in a year Russia will launch the creepy Losharik! It doesn't matter that the old road bridge is barely alive ... And if Russian Railways fulfills its long-term promises in 2021, and from the Obozerskaya station to the Arkhangelsk and Severodvinsk stations electrifies the Northern Railway of the Russian Federation, this is a direct threat to the entire democratic world: Russia in many times faster to the ports of Severodvinsk and Arkhangelsk will be able to transfer from the central regions of the Russian Federation their armies of many thousands with hundreds of tanks ... And if electric locomotives can run from Severodvinsk to the Nyonoksa station ... And then they stand on Obozerskaya for 25-30 minutes for a train, waiting when the diesel locomotive will be replaced with an electric locomotive ...

    Norway is a rare exception in Europe where some tunnels can be used by cyclists as there are no bypass roads through the fjords. Before you enter the tunnel, you need to press a special button. The notification will light up: "Attention! Cyclist in the tunnel!"

    Sweden has always been "neutral" in quotation marks. The whole history of Sweden goes against Russia. And Norway is trying to pretend to be an "independent" state, in fact it is the limitrophe of the United States and England, as well as Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, etc. The only difference is in geography, availability of resources and attractiveness for large capital. Therefore, countries such as Portugal, Iceland, Ireland are boiled in their own juice and no one touches them.

    Norgs are still curmudgeons .. During the occupation by the Germans, most of the mines sat out and did not rush to fight .. But as soon as the Soviet troops knocked out the Wehrmacht and liberated the Norgs .. They left the mines and began to calculate the losses (how many houses were burned, how many trees were broken and etc.) And with such a look, they all presented it to the Soviet command that our mouths just opened with surprise, such a perversion ... They were not allowed into their homes, demanded payment, etc.
    Our people huddled in tents, like, well, they are in fig .. The order was not to enter into conflict with the local population and so that no claims on their part .. Get out as you want .. (I read the memoirs very interesting ..) So when we withdraw our troops have accumulated many claims and claims against the Soviet troops of the bastard curmudgeon ..
    And we built a narrow-gauge railway for the needs of the Army .. One our quartermaster with a Ukrainian surname told the Norgs that this railway is very expensive and the rails made of special steel (very expensive) were made for 100 years and that will compensate you for everything .. We left Norway calmly , but the sediment remained creepy Well, those curmudgeons still .. Ugh, damn it
    Read the guys just .. Maybe this is the same railroad laughing
