South of Oslo, no. Only south of the E6 junction at Vinterbro
(picture because this thread needs more of them)



West of Oslo it looks like they'll start on tunneling from Lysaker to Slependen. But this project is turning incredibly expensive. It's also politicly turning very controversial, due to both air quality and general climate goals. Many sees the money better invested on increasing capacity on the metro.
A couple of shorter stretches on E18 west is passing downtown Asker and Filipstad with tunnels. These are not as controversial.

Eiksund Tunnel

The Eiksund Tunnel became toll free on Saturday. The Eiksund Tunnel is the world's deepest undersea tunnel at -287 meters. However, the actual height difference is more like 350 meters because the tunnel portals are above sea level.

Are there any restrictions on LPG-powered cars on these deep long tunnels?

I find it so amusing that you feel you have to point that out...

You know what I mean... The southern tunnel portal is at +60 m or so.

E6 Oppland

2 kilometers of motorway will start construction this fall on E6, the west bank of Mjøsa in Oppland, also 16km of the current road will get a center barrier pending further financing for adding the extra two lanes:

This is very different than a situation where you just have a city bypass road/tunnel that you can avoid paying a bit.
This will be interesting to see when Ryfast opens. Part of the project is Hundvågtunnellen which will provide a second link between the island borough of Hundvåg and mainland Stavanger. It will probably be faster for people heading south of town, but I could see some people choosing the current bridge which is free instead of paying the 30 kr toll for the tunnel. If the proposal of creating a toll ring around the city center (which bridge users would need to pass) becomes reality the bridge might be less of a money saver though.

Rv. 7 Buskerud

Aslow:-P

Probably not your point, but I thought the majority of the through traffic from north to south-west in Oslo chose Vålereng/Ekebergs/Bjørvika - tunnels and not Ring 3. I also thought Ring 3 was renamed E6 east of Ulven, but a check on Google map made me uncertain. Anyway, there are much faster routes from the north to Vestlandet north of Boknafjorden than Oslo, and in any case Chris is absolutely right that local traffic dominates the main roads of Oslo. Rv 22 is only a viable bypass during extreme rush hour, or for odd destinations, the short improvement to Fet does not change that. The Manglerud tunnel, although not strictly a bypass, might improve the conditions for north - south traffic if built, but probably any nominal gain by then has been swamped by increased traffic.

Although I would love to see a proper eastern bypass around Oslo, or for that matter, a direct Trondheim - Bergen route given the recent poor decisions regarding E39, I do not see either happen. There is simply no push for it, and probably more important challenges to address.

It's named e6 after Ryenkrysset. It's seems like google consider it to be a hybrid between Ryen and Ulven though but I do not think that stretch is signposted as e6.

Ryen - Ulven is signed as both E6 and Ring 3.

Confirmed independently by Street view below ;-) Could it be, though, that Vålerenga and Ekeberg tunnels still are the official E6 in order to keep that stretch as a national road, and hence the map confusion?

A friend of mine used to drive there as well, and told me he had to go by 0530 to avoid significant delay. He might have been exaggerating, though.

Both the Ryen - Bjørvika and Ulven - Bjørvika ekspressways is designated as "E6 arm". Rv190 exists no more, and it was never signed as such either. Ring3 from Ulven to Lysaker also has the number Rv150, but not signed. Ring2 has the number Rv161 altough it is now illigal to drive it between Tøyen and Carl Berner(meaning Ring2 is meaningless as of 28.mai this year!)

Some renders from the very impressive project of E18 trough Bærum, alternative 4 is the one prefered by municipality. Blue is buslanes, red is bikeroad:

I think this make sense. Since E18 south of Bjørvika is slow, Ryen - Bjørvika - Ulvensplitten is the defacto (huge) interchange between E18 to the west and E6.

Wikipedia says it's an unsigned Rv190.
http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riksvei_190

Edit: didn't read that Rv190 had been mentioned.
