Well, the AADT is very low, and the roads on either side of the bridge are just as narrow and it's highly unlikely that these roads ever will be widened or replaced.

New Grenlands bridge - four proposals.

1. Building a identical bridge 30m to the east of the old bridge.



2. Building a mirrored bridge 20m to the east of the old bridge.



3. Building a mirrored bridge 20m to the west of the old bridge.



4. Building a larger suspension bridge 100m to the west of the old bridge.

The fourth option will feature a bridge only visible by night, it seems.

Cost, cost, cost...

The construction cost is more or less directly proportional to the area of the bridge. If you double the width, you at least double the weight, and then you have to make the supporting structures able to carry a double load.

The sea under the bridge is 60 meters deep. Thus making pillars would be very expensive. When making long spans, it is essential to optimize the weight of the superstructure.

130 vehicles per day use it, so the chance of encountering another vehicle exactly on the bridge is fairly small.

E39

The tolls on E39 south of Kristiansund were scrapped today.

Transportation minister going crazy:


This project was a good example of tolling policy going out of control. Tolls can be useful in funding local projects that are not in the interest of the national taxpayers, or very large tunnel or bridge projects which are difficult to fund without tolls, but this was just a minor 9 km realignment project.

Fv. 76 Molvikhammar Tunnel

The new 2.7 km Molvikhammar Tunnel opened to traffic in Nordland yesterday. It's part of County Road 76, the only land connection to Brønnøy municipality. It runs alongside the Tosfjord and provides a safe and uninterrupted route along an avalanche-prone stretch of road. The tunnel is toll free.

E136 Vågstrand Tunnel

Breakthrough in the 3.7 km Vågstrand Tunnel in Møre og Romsdal was achieved today. The tunnel will bypass a narrow and rockslide-prone segment of E136. The tunnel will open late 2014.

Helgelandsbrua opened in 1991. It's part of Fylkesvei 17, also known as Kystriksveien, giving Sandnessjøen a ferry free mainland connection.

The 1276 m Nes tunnel on E16 south of Hønefoss finally reopened to traffic yesterday after a 3-year renovation. AADT is 12,000.

Nevertheless, if one has the choice between a) infrastructure present, but tolled, or b) infrastructure missing, the former is still preferable

When browsing this thread, one has the impression Norway completes some bridge or tunnel every week or so. And in Hungary, a Danube bridge (a simple Danube road bridge, with no mountains, no long spans, no 60m deep sea) appears like a century project

Money, money, money. And how you distribute the money.

Rendering of how the e16 junction at Tesiiåsen, north of Oslo, is intended to become.

At 5m wide, the bridge would indeed be a onle lane, alternating traffic structure. Anything less than 5.5m wide is considered too narrow for two way traffic. Only the smallest/narrowest of vehicles could pass each other on that bridge.

The government have said to yes to allowing personalized number plates. It's expected to come into fruition from 2017-18.

In many European countries it has been allowed for ages, but very few people actually do it and I don't think it's just because there are extra fees for it.

A completed section of the new E18 in Eidsberg was opened to skiers in January.



For clarity, a new sign has been installed to say that skiers don't have to pay a toll.

Tendering starts for a 1.5 long tunnel and 1km widening of Fv7 alongside Hardangerfjord - to replace this piece of road:

It will take a lot of time to upgrade that road if the job is done in chunks of 2.5 kilometres. One of the most frightening roads in Norway: narrow, windy and a lot of heavy traffic.
