Terrible project in my opinion. Should have went for a set of bridges. Same goes for the U/C project Ryfast.



Then we could have had this in a few years.

Sweet. I wonder how this will affect the distribution of Oslo-Bergen traffic at Hardangervidda and Filefjell, when both routes have become ferry free.

Filefjell is still more wintersafe, but 20 km longer. How much is the toll at Hardanger Bridge?

I don't think they have released a official price yet, but most article I've seen suggest around 150 NOK, or about 20 Euros.

Some april photos from Rv80 bridge outside Bodø - imagine if all Norwegian road projects had such spectacular good photo updates as this one:

E6 history

I am trying to find out some history of the E6 in Oslo. Very few information is known, other than that Hvam - Berger (5.5 km) opened in the fall of 1964 as the first motorvei of Norway.

A small segment of E6 however is older. On this photo you see the Ring 3 / E6 in Ulven. On the far left is an intersection with the link to E18.The construction side left (west) of the Ring 3 is the Vallhall Arena. Behind that is an industrial area where currently the trumpet interchange with E6 is located. This segment opened in 1962. E6 traffic uses this segment for about 600 meters.


Photo taken in 1967. From Oslobilder.

This is the segment on Google Maps:

E6 history

This 1956 aerial photo shows Teisen. It looks like they did reserve space for E6, which currently runs in front of the curved building.



This 1969 photo shows the tunnel at Bryn nearly completed.


E6 in Manglerud. It runs left-right behind the church. This photo is from 1964, but it is unclear whether E6 is completed here. It's about 1 kilometer away from the photo above.


Also in Manglerud. The road is the E6, which had two lanes back then. Photo from 1961-1962.


Again Manglerud, in 1965. The roundabout on the left currently has a tunnel underneath it for through traffic, but I don't know when it was constructed.

E6 history

This 1995 photo shows Ryen to the left and Manglerud to the right. The E6 turns east here for a short while. The roundabout was still used by all traffic back then. The tunnel underneath it was likely constructed by the late 1990s.

Bridge collapses in Trondheim (E6)

Quote:
Bridge collapses in Trondheim

At least one person was missing and several injured after a bridge under construction collapsed on the outskirts of Trondheim Wednesday afternoon. Emergency crews were still scrambling to reach a car trapped under the rubble.

Anders Bang Danielsen of the Trondheim police confirmed that at least six persons were injured when the unfinished bridge collapsed at around 2:30pm onto the roadway below at Leangen in Trondheim. The construction project is part of improvements being made to the eastbound portion of the busy E6 highway through Trondheim.

The person missing is the driver of a car pinned under the collapsed bridge. Danielsen said it was unclear whether there also were passengers in the car or whether other cars were caught under the rubble as well.

“I’m afraid at least one vehicle with persons inside is caught under the bridge,” Danielsen told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK). He said between six and eight other persons were injured and sent to St Olavs Hospital in Trondheim.

Rescue crews reported that they had cleared enough rubble by late afternoon to see the car but still couldn’t get to it. Danielsen told NRK the rescue work was expected to take several more hours. Police, fire brigades and ambulance crews were on the scene including an air ambulance. Police also called in help from neighbouring sheriffs’ offices.

Arild Heimdal of a local car dealership located near the bridge told NRK he heard “a terrible rumbling noise” and customers started yelling that “the bridge had fallen down.” He said there were many people working on the bridge and that he and others were “shocked” by the collapse.

“There’s always a lot of traffic under this bridge,” he said, adding that it was being expanded. “There had to be people under it, I can’t imagine anything else,” he said.

Harald Inge Johnsen, project leader for the state highway department (Statens vegvesen) said it was “complete chaos” in the area. Heavy construction equipment was being used “to clear the rubble and see what’s under it,” he told NRK.

It's not the E6 main route, but a spur route into Trondheim, which is currently being widened to 2x2 lanes. The new bridge collapsed. Additionally, they are building a new tunnel to extend the road to the city center.

The exact location is here

two people are missing under that new 2 lane bridge that collapsed as they were poring concrete on top of it. Both the road going over and the road going under is been expanded to 2x2 lane roads these days.

Photos by me.

OK, some pointers. The E6 ran through Oslo city centre and not along Store Ringvei (the current Ring 3) until the completion of the (then) 2-lane expressway between Klemetsrud and Vinterbro in the 1980s. Southwards, it followed Mosseveien (current E18) together with the E18 down to Vinterbro. To the north, it was routed along Strømsveien from Galgeberg and northwards. Before the Djupdalen motorway, the then rv 50 ran along Trondheimsveien and the current rv 4 to Gjelleråsen.

The E18 and the E6 met in the middle of Gamlebyen where the E6 followed city streets. Quite a few images of the old rv 1 which became the E6 in 1965 can be found on this site:

www.riksvei.no

If you look at an Oslo map, the E6 first followed (south to north) Mosseveien-Oslo Gate-St. Hallvards gate-Strømsveien. The road was improved in increments, and even after the realignment along Ring 3 and rv 160 Ulven-Ryen-Klemetsrud-Vinterbro, the E6 kept its number through the Vålerenga tunnel (opened late 80s) as an arm to the main alignment. For a while, this was renumbered as the rv 190, now, it's back as an arm of the E6.

Strømsveien mentioned in my previous post is the road running left-right in the front of the above picture. The current E6 runs along the so-called Ulvensplitten, constructed behind the red barn you can see in the top right part of the picture.

Yes, those small houses along the road have been demolished to make space for the new expressway (we can hardly call it a motorway with bus stops and right in, right out interchanges).

Strømsveien wasn't officially designated "motortrafikkvei" until a couple of years ago, even though there hasn't been at-grade interchanges between Helsfyr and start of motorway at Alnabru for years. The Ring 3 is, incidentally, not posted expressway, though, since there is an older section with pavements. There are no more at-grade interchanges, though, but the distance between interchanges and the capacity of many of them are still substandard. The proposed Manglerud tunnel and U/C Løren tunnel will take care of the worst, though.

Absolutely I'd like to see someone making a similar effort concerning the E18 (rv 40) and rest of E6 (rv 50)...

Melkøysund Tunnel

An interesting feature I found near Hammerfest in the far north of Norway; a private 2.3 kilometer sub-sea road tunnel. De Melkøysund Tunnel connects the island of Kvaløya (where Hammerfest is located) with the tiny island of Melkøya, where a large LNG plant was built. The tunnel is only accessible for employees. It opened in 2003.
