Investigation of railway accident on the Bratsbergbanen line

Description

On Wednesday 29 April 2020 train 811 collided with a semi-trailer truck carrying a boat on Teglverket level crossing on the Bratsbergbanen line. The collision led to derailment and major material damages.

The truck came down Borgestadbakken, from county road 32 Gunnar Knudsens road, in the direction of the Skien river. The truck passed the level crossing, but the trailer got stuck. The truck could not move neither forward nor backward.

The investigation will clarify the sequence of events and identify possible causal factors. Any underlying conditions that may have contributed to the accident will be mapped and analysed.
