The line bridges the local road Risløkkalleen immediately east of the station. To the north of the station is a largely residential area, with several detached houses. To the south is a more industrial area, including the main office for the road construction company Oslo Vei, the successor to Oslo's public road constructor. Also near the subway station is a base for the Norwegian Public Roads Administration which deals with driver and vehicle licensing.
