Plans for a tramway to Tonsenhagen were launched in the 1950s, and in 1954 the city council zoned the necessary area for the route. Modified versions of the plans were again passed by the city council in 1986, with subsequent zoning passed in 1993. The proposed line will continue along Trondheimsveien in its own right-of-way down the center of the road. A new station will be built at Sinsenterrassen, for both trams and buses. The line will receive a station serving Aker University Hospital, before the line runs to Bjerke in a culvert under Norwegian National Road 4 and Traverveien. The line will the run from Årvoll to Tonsenhagen, with part of the route planned as a conventional street tram in mixed traffic to eliminate the need for expropriation on the east side of Årvollveien and impact on parks.
The project is estimated to give a profit for Ruter of NOK 7 million per year and have an economic positive impact for society of NOK 20 million. The line will remove the substantial parallel running of trams along Trondheimsveien and the Sinsen Line and the current bus line 31 can be terminated. Trams are more energy efficient and give less global and local pollution than buses, increasing the positive impact. The project is presumed financed through Oslo Package 3.

Famous quotes containing the words expansion and/or future:
“The fundamental steps of expansion that will open a person, over time, to the full flowering of his or her individuality are the same for both genders. But men and women are rarely in the same place struggling with the same questions at the same age.”
—Gail Sheehy (20th century)
“Everything I do is done within sight of the Führer, so that my faults or mistakes are never hidden from him. I do my very utmost to live and act in such a manner that the Führer should remain satisfied with me; I am hard-working; but whether I shall always be able to cope with the tasks entrusted to me in the future as well, is an open question.”
—Martin Bormann (19001945)
