Should cross the Drammenfjord in Svelvik instead , there's a riduclously shirt ferry crossing there, but that's a local project. No doubt they will chose the southern one as is better from a national point of view

I don't quite understand the first alternative, as it doesn't actually cross the Oslo Fjord.
It utilizes the existing Oslofjord tunnel for the crossing.

It does seem to be the far better choice. I'm hoping for a bridge. Bridges are safer and more reliable (less closures) and also cooler.

I would imagine that a bridge will meet massive opposition from the people of Moss and Horten who will lose their sea view. Sadly.

A photo from the still unused E18 bypass of Mysen, it's been complete since october, but since the only access-road is the narrow Fv123 Vegvesenet decided to postpone opening untill summer when the other half of the section is finished. It has a status of motortraffikkvei and is 4-lane with 90km/h speed limit.

The contracts are also signed for 6.3 km of 2x2 E18 between Retvet and Knapstad (west of the photo above this post). The cost is 836 million NOK / € 100 million. It will be completed in late 2016.

Emergency lane/shoulders too expensive, but double-sided road lightings apparantly a must. Weird priorities...

What was wrong with the old bridge, aside from the fact it was a one lane structure.

E6 is the single most important road to northern Norway, so it carries some truck traffic.

The old truss bridge was built in 1938.

Statens Vegvesen has put out to tender a major contract for the western part of the E16 relocation in the vicinity of Filefjell (formal name in Norwegian: "E16 Varpe bru-Smedalsosen. Veg-, bru- og tunnelentreprise"). As occasionally happens with major contracts, access data for the construction documentation is included in the tender notice (site https://joint2.prosjekthotell.com/eR...bruSmedalsosen with username [email protected] and password Suletind1793). The works include 14 km of new road and a new tunnel almost 6 km long, running underneath the ridge that overlooks the present E16 north of Otrøvatnet. E16 in this area is narrow, with dashed shoulder stripes and no centerline; its replacement will have the standard riksveg cross-section with full-width lanes and centerline, and is supposed to be more winter-proof.

The company that runs the toll booths in Alterhavstunnelen have asked for a 6 million nok compensation from the state due to the fees they lose out on when electric cars gets a free pass through the toll system.

Detailed regulation of E18 Retvet - Vinterbro starts now. Luckily the 16 km new motorway-stretch will get H9-standard instead of H8-standard. This means emergency lanes of 3 m, and a total width of 23-25 m (H8 = 1,5 m and 20 m).

Turns out the alternatives for Oslofjord crossings reported earlier were not accurate. Here they are straight from the horse' mouth:


http://www.vegvesen.no/Om+Statens+ve...Vis?key=572073

Three concepts are being evaluated:

1. Second tube added to current Oslofjord tunnel or new bridge in the same area. The Moss-Horten ferry remains.

2. Second tube added to current Oslofjord tunnel or new bridge in the same area, and new fixed link Moss-Horten (bridge or tunnel).

3. New connection Vestby-Hurum-Holmestrand including bridges across the Oslofjord and Drammenfjord. The current Oslofjord tunnel is closed, as is the ferry connection

Bridge across the Brandangersund in Sogn og Fjordane. It opened in 2010. It's in a remote area along the coast. The main span is 220 meters long. It's the longest network arch bridge in Norway.

Appears even to be a single track bridge? What AADT may they have? 5?

The bridge is only 5 meters wide, so basically one wide lane indeed.

The pre-construction traffic volume was 128 vehicles per day. The 20-year (that would be 2030) volume is estimated at 270 vehicles per day.

Construction cost was 105 million NOK / € 12.5 million.

2 normal cars should still fit though, right?
Strange to build such narrow new bridges though...
