The station and line into Bærum was originally not built as a metro line but as the Lilleaker Line, built by Bærumsbanen. The station opened 1 January 1930. It was not until 1942 when the line became part of the heavier metro network. The station retains a turning loop for trams which can only run forwards.
As of 1 July 2006 the station along with most of the Kolsås Line was closed for maintenance, and the exact future of the line outside Oslo's boundaries is uncertain. The station was also closed for over a year between 1 July 2003 and 22 November 2004.
