I would never have guessed that that was a public road. They really should have put up a direction sign there to make people aware of that is a road and to tell where it leads to.

An a sixt branch is planned!
Actually, they do have underground roundabout "tunnel parking" in Tromsø,directly connected to the rest of the tunnel system, but I do not believe this is one it's outside entrances.

There is a lot of flooding in Norway currently. Part of Riksvei 3 is washed away.

This is south of Ringebu, north of lake Mjøsa. Pretty much the entire valley is flooded. On the right is the E6.

A guy living in lower Gudbrandsdalen had gotten his house washed away for the second time in two years. Time to consider moving?

Floods have currently interrupted all traffic options between Trondheim and Oslo except air. Watch a video from the flood along Glomma in Østerdalen.

The opening of the Karmøy Tunnel was originally planned for today, but has been delayed to sometime September 2013.

The Karmøy Tunnel is a T-connection with a total underground length of 8.9 kilometers. It will provide a second access to the fairly populated island of Karmøy south of Haugesund (pop. 39,000). The three legs of the tunnel connect with each other through a roundabout located at 130 meters below ground level.

Meanwhile there are also plans to replace the aging Karmsund Bridge near Haugesund with a new connection, either bridge or tunnel. Several bridge and tunnel options are being studied, including cable-stayed, arched or suspension designs or a sub-sea tunnel.

You can see the route on OSM. Switching to Google Satellite you can see the tunnel entrances too.

Some of the alternatives:

A new arch bridge, south of the current bridge. ( the small looking one is the current bridge, haha, small.. well, it gets small compared to the new one)
Svinesund bridge, anyone?


Alt. 2 , Crossing at the point of Risøy, at this point a new bridge to Risøy is already plan so this bridge will smack two flies at one.



And Alt. 3

Seemingly a little south of the previous alternative, a bit boring though, perhaps?



And 4th, paralell bridge to the old one, kinda eh.

I have some difficulty to understand the T-Forbindelsen. I seems to me that it connects nothing to nothing.

It shortens the current route from Haugesund to Stavanger by a few kilometres. Does that justify the investement of 200+ million euros?

Work on Kåfjordbrua is temporarily suspended for a week due to safety concerns.


Article (run through google translate ):

Kåfjordbrua on hold


Quote:
Construction of the new bridge over Kåfjorddalen Alta has been suspended for a week, writes Norwegian North News on its website.

The reason is twisting of the vehicle used during work to extend the span. The wagon weighs 120 tons.

For security reasons, further building was temporarily stopped. NPRA is estimated that the work of the bridge can be resumed Friday or Saturday.

It was the tension of the warps that goes up to the 74 meter high brutårnet, the shift occurred, said project manager at E6 Alta West, Gudmund Løvli, the NPRA.

After the bridge collapse in Trondheim 8 May this year, in which two people were killed, the security around the building of bridges extra tightened. Here was the cause of the accident lack of stiffening of the middle travel works.

Kåfjorddalen bridge built by the Austrian entrepreneur Alpine Bau Gmbh.

The bridge is 300 meters long and will be completed in October.

Norway invests a lot more money in time-saving projects than most other countries, especially when you consider the relatively low amount of users, which is also why most projects are tolled.

The island of Karmøy is fairly populated at 39.000 inhabitants which will have (much) faster access to destinations along E39 south of Haugesund, especially when the Boknafjord Tunnel will be completed. Karmøy has some industry.

Main goals according to Vegvesen.no:

- Better connection from Karmøy to E39
- Relieve Fv47 trough Northern Karmøy
- Reduce travel distances and travel costs.
- Industrial axis Hydro - Statoil
- Better access to Karmøy airport
- Reroute the Coastal express bus
- Closing down the Skudeneshavn ferry

T-forbindelsen and the upcoming Rogfast should instead focus on making Karmøy lufthavn obsolete. Haugesund is so close to Sola, it shouldn't be a priority for the state two run to airports in this region. Alternate, they can sell it to local investors.

Ring 3, Oslo

The westbound tube of the Løren Tunnel, part of Ring 3 around Oslo, opened to traffic last night. It's part of bringing Ring 3 underground with more capacity. The project cost is close to 4 billion NOK, which may make it the most expensive road project in Europe on a "per kilometer" basis, although I doubt whether it's fair to compare such short tunnel projects.

It includes a couple of km with new local roads and a complete makeover of the metro station tough.
