Love these old roads. From a tourist's point of view, it is almost a shame to see more and more of these roads disappear.

I remember going to Norway in 1982 when we crossed Hardangervidda on the Rv7 and suddenly found ourselves on the Måbødalen descent with a big mobile home.

I wish they were better at keeping the old roads open while they bypassed it with new constructions. I.e. like they have done with Lærdalstunnelen and county road 243 rather than how it was done in Måbødalen.

You are absolutely right about this. Even if they kept it as a one-way-road (like they did with Stalheimskleiva).

But most of the time, there is obviously simply no space to keep both. At least, most of Måbødalens road is still there and you can walk it. The old road along Eidfjordvatnet is open for bicycles. That's a start.

And I heard that Riksantikvaren has taken responsibility for keeping old roads and structures worth keeping.

I am very much interested in these old roads. Is there a thread on the SSC that deals with this?

Måbødalen is fine, but try Bergsdalen next time you come here:

Or even better, join in the race (running, rollerskiing or biking):

or Trollstigen:

Thanks Bannor, been to both.
My personal highlight was in fact Aursjøvegen.

The Riksvei 19 ferry connection Moss-Horten will be put out to tender again in 2016. There will allegedly be a requirement for 8 ferries vs. 5 today, which will require the construction of third ferry docks on either side of the fjord. Planning is already underway in Horten. The ferries currently depart every 15 minutes at peak times, so I assume they will increase to every 10 minutes.

Aren't they planning a fixed link in that area?

A fixed link is many years into the future, if it happens. They're currently working on a so-called "concept choice study" which will evalute principles for future Oslofjord crossings. It will be presented next year. They've made an English language video about the study (which obviously doesn't say much about future bridges and tunnels, just what the concept study entails).

This is our Fehmarn-link. The fixed link is many years ahead, so it's not that weird they want to extend ferry tenders if the current runs out in 2016.

Innovation Norway have granted Statens Vegvesen money to finance a look at the feasibility of building the planned 1600m long bridge over Mjøsa in wood.

T-Forbindelsen south of Haugesund will open to traffic on September 5. This is a 20 kilometer toll road project, including the 8.9 kilometer Karmøy Tunnel which has three branches and a roundabout at 130 meters below the ground.

Recent pictures from the 670 m Tverland brigde in Bodø, part of the new riksvei 80 Løding-Vikan which will open later this year.

Strange that the passing lane ends inside the tunnel...

You're pretty much done with the climbing at that point. The roundabout is only(!) 60m below sea level.
