Statens Vegvesen have proposed 20 tolls booth with payment both ways on 17 of 20 toll points on the new e18 south of Oslo that is currently under planning. It's expected to cost 31 to 40 billions nok. The tolls are expected to fund 25 of the billions hem while 3 of the remainings will come from Oslopakke 3 and the rest from the national government.

You mean west of Oslo. E18 will not be upgraded south, only E6.

I will shed very few tears about how much people have to pay to drive a car to downtown Oslo. Make a connection directly from Liertoppen to Hvam instead.

Statens Vegvesen is looking into alternatives for a fixed link to the island of Dønna, near Sandnessjøen, Nordland. One of the alternatives would be the world's deepest subsea tunnel. If realized, it would be 396 meters below sea level. The tunnel would be between 11 and 16 kilometers long, depending on the tunnel grade. The maximum grade on new tunnels in the Riksvei network is 5%, but county roads are not conforming to that standard yet. A 13 km tunnel would require an 8% grade and trucks don't like that.

The island of Dønna has a population of 1,400.

Speaking of the road between Bergen and Oslo, I might have to drive this in the next month or so. Seeing that there are different alternative routes to go, which one gives me the most consistent drive at 70 or 80 kph, with the fewest number of slowdowns to 30/40/50 in towns and villages?

I see as my options(from Bergen):

1. E16
2. E16 to rv7
3. E16 to rv7 to 40 to E134 to E18
4. E16 to rv7 to 13 to E134 to E18.
5. Some other secret mystery route.

Anyone have that link that was posted on here a few years ago that showed the speed limits for every road in Norway?

Google Maps states no. 2 as the shortest (483km, 6h59min), followed by no.3 (485km,7h3min).
At first sight, I preferred route no.1, which is 50km and - at least according to Google - 39 mins slower.
But I don't quite believe in that because E16 is not that windy and does not have that high mountain passes than rv7 has.
Especially in winter time, it makes a difference if you can avoid Hardangervidda with over 1200 meters above sea level. Admittedly, the Hardanger bridge has mad this journey faster than in the ferry era.

To be fair, the link would also connect Herøy with a population of 1,700 to the mainland. Still it would be a cost of millions per inhabitant.

I would recommend using Rv7/Rv13 if the weather is ok (it should be in april). Alternative is Rv52. E16 is longer and Rv7 has higher road standard. Fv40 is nice for tourism, but less effective.

When crossing the mountains, there are many narrow and windy sections on all these routes, when 80 kph cannot be suggested even if allowed by law.

Then again, on winter time the roads may be closed on a short notice; E16 far less frequently than the others. Whether the road is open or not will be signposted in real time when you are approaching the decision-making point, like this:

https://maps.google.fi/?ll=60.596292...36.88,,0,-0.12

(Åpen = Open, Stengt = Closed)

If the roads are open, then E16-7 should be the fastest. The bridge has a toll of 150 Kr (€18).

E16 and Rv52 are equally reliable for winter closing. Rarely are they closed. But during storms they are open for one way traffic following snowploughs so it may be some waiting. Worth mentioning is a project to eliminate closures altogether on E16 by 2017. Currently the road leading up to the mountain on the east side is narrow, steep and twisting. E16 is snowcovered trough Valdres and there are some narrow sections and long 60kph zones while Rv7 Hallingdal is salted, but has more traffic.

Rv 7 across Hardangervidda has been closed indefinitely due to a herd of approximately 2000 reindeer close the the road. As others have mentioned, this road is frequently closed due to bad weather, but it's the first time it's been closed due to reindeer.

Fv. 78 Toven Tunnel

Driving into the under construction Toven Tunnel. At 10.665 meters, it will be the 8th longest road tunnel in Europe when it opens in late 2014.
