In Trøndelag theres no four-lane stretch south of Melhus, but theres a southbound passing lane for a couple of kilometers somewhere between Støren and Oppdal. If there were a four-laner there, the reason would most probably be passing.

And I agree with you that Norway is a country where driving is an at-all-time game with the death. Probably the most dangerous traffic in the world! Farmers with a hay-fork on their tractor who on purpose drive into poor tourists in a Yaris. In addition, everything else here i completely messed up by socialist politicians... Thinking about emigrating soon. Maybe to New Zealand or something......
Except tourists, Rv3 is the dominating route Trondheim - Oslo. No passing lanes Melhus - Stange.... 360 km (36 Scandinavian miles ;-) )

Correction: Northbound, I believe there is still a passing lane south of Løten.... 345 km then.

And, for those of you that didn't get it, Gsus was slightly ironic /sarcastic in his last paragraph....

But not from Lillehammer, there are quite a few who follow the destination signs in good faith aswell since Vegvesen has found it more sensible to sign a small village of 2500 people over 200km away. When there is an expressway to Otta it might become the faster option tough.

Tolling on Askøy (island) near Bergen starts tomorrow. There will be 4 toll gantries on the main roads on the southern part of the island. The Askøy Bridge will remain toll-free (it was paid off in 2006).

Well, I drive often Trpndheim-Elverum, 350km in 4.5 hour with no breaks. The passing of trailers and slow cars is not a problem as the traffic is low (exept in trøndelag where rv3 and e6 meets).

ChrisZwolle, and that stretch there (E18 Oslo-Sandvika) is among those in the Oslo region in most need of an upgrade... Actually one could say all the way to Drammen, but the stretch from Oslo to Sandvika is definitely the "worst" of it, in terms of not being ready for the future and the amount of traffic one can expect there.

There is a brand new railroad, though. If they got more people to use the train during rush, much of the traffic problems could be avoided. I would say Ring 3 is more disastrous.

Is there still any motorway opening expected until end of 2014?

Any updated info about the completion of this projects?

Everything on E6 Minnesund - Labbdalen except the Korslund tunnel, and the adjacent roads will be opened 13th of december.

I´m uncertain excactly when the rest will open. All I´ve heard is sometime during spring 2015.

Oslofjord Bridge

A render of the possible Oslofjord Bridge. It doesn't state any dimensions, but when measuring it in Google Earth, the main span would be around 1600 - 1700 meters, which could make it the second-longest suspension bridge in the world.

The government has approved the Bodø city package. It includes a 2.8 km long twin-tube, four-lane tunnel that will be completed in 2018.

I am quite impressed, they actually plan to make the Julsundet bridge (as well as the tunnel) with four lanes, but maybe not the connecting roads? In any case, it is an improvement from previous short-sightedness. The bridge will be 1 950 meter long, with a main span of 1 650 m, i.e. longer than Storebælt, so I guess the added torsional stiffness from the increase in width compared with the youtube video is helpful.

PS: Anybody aware of the current timetable for the rest of the Møre og Romsdal E39-aspirations (south and north of Møre-aksen) to make a real "samlet fylke" (=united county)?

You`re right earlier plans was based on two-lane roads except for the bridge and tunnel. But the road administration has concluded now that connecting roads will be getting four lanes also, according to the newest planning-document at the strart of the regulation-pfase.

http://www.vegvesen.no/Europaveg/e39...ll-vik-julbøen

Look at the first document under "Last ned", if you can have it translated.

Good to see the Møre & Romsdal big cities are finally getting a solid connection, will make the region a lot more attractive, both to commercial interests and for people. Would hope for improved train connections too, but that is maybe a bit too far fetched at this stage.

Btw: Vegvesenet just released some nice concept videos for the Svegatjørn-Rådal (Rådal/Nordås/Fana - Os), worth a check, especially the last video. Edit: The first is the one I find the most interesting!

The speed limits signed in the video are wrong. It's 80km/h in the Os end, and the new road will have 100km/h or possibly even 110km/h.
