"To kilometer ny motorveg fra Minnesund til Ørbekk, og omtrent åtte kilometer i Stange ble satt under trafikk denne uka. Dermed er omtrent halvparten av strekningen som nå skal åpnes, allerede i drift"

According to this article the two southernmost, and the eight northern kilometers opened this week as announced.

From the Ryfast-thread. Btw, there is also a huge construction site between Våland and Mosvatnet, at the Ryfast-tunnel and the Eiganes-tunnel's south end, which is not in this post.

Still planned as a motortrafikkveg, i.e. not full motorway :-(

Haha.. Are you be worried?

Norway is a part of the Schengen-agreement so you can pass w/o passport or even stopping your car. However customs do occasionally perform controls, but this is as far as I know pretty rare (unless you have a suspicious looking van or something). Also, from what I have heard they do tend to "discriminate" license plates from certain countries, and wave you over for a control, but I can't confirm this. I assume you are talking about the Svinesund-border?

I recommend not having anything illegal in your car or bringing too much booze/tobacco

Check out this web page if you are curious: http://www.toll.no/en/international/...obacco-quotas/

Welcome, and I hope you have a great stay!

(PS: Been awake for 30 hours straight writing an essay, so my reply is probably not the best :P)

New (former?) E16 at Sandvika, an edge city of Oslo. As reported before, this road is the busiest two-lane road in Norway with up to 30,000 vehicles per day.

About an hour's drive north of Oslo: Fv 33 closed until further notice due to rocks falling on the road. Fv 33 is a fairly important regional road, as it is the shortest and most obvious connection between the Gjøvik area and Oslo Airport.

Not former, still E 16. They could have called it Rv. 7. But that would have made E 16 go in only one direction, which would have made sense. It's not supposed to make sense.

The brain behind N100 (the bible for designing roads in Norway) raises questions whether Norway has a too low AADT for planning and construction of motorways, which today is at 12 000. A report from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology suggests 15 000 is a more natural number.

Pre 2010 the numbers was 15 000 for government roads without trunk-road status, and 12 000 for trunk-roads. The same year most of the government roads was given away to the counties, by some speculated just to make sure the counties still have something to work with.

I wouldn't use those numbers too strictly. 12.000 vehicles per day is a fairly busy road, and 15.000+ is an unpleasant busy road (lots of columns). However, it should consider whether an expansion has a favorable cost-benefit ratio. Some short busy stretch may not be worth widening if it involves an exorbitant cost, while other, less busy sections could be cheap to widen to four lanes.

15.000 is acceptable in urban areas, but less so in rural areas.

NRK has a section dedicated to news reports about foreign truckers causing trouble on the northern wintry roads.

Most of E6 along the southern arm of Lake Mjøsa opened to traffic yesterday.

http://www.bygg.no/article/1220161

The article says there is 2 km of E6 remaining due to the bankruptcy of Alpine Bau, which will open in early 2015.

The article says 18 km (Vegvesen says 20 km) opened to traffic, but I think some of it was already opened two weeks ago?

E6 Minnesund-Labbdalen was officially opened to traffic yesterday. 4 km of the 22 km section is not yet completed (delayed due to the bankruptcy of a contractor) and will open next summer.

I think that's a layer of oxide to prevent rust.

It's not to prevent rust, it IS rust. But yes, it will protect the material under it. I guess the choice is esthetic as well. The brown color blends much better with the surroundings, almost looks like wood The whole Gardermoen - Biri will have it when done, like it or not

It's the so called weatehring steel/corten steel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weathering_steel

The weathering steel has been used for aesthetic reasons, to make the guard rails blend in with the environment. I like them, but they've proven to be short-lasting. Water collects in the joints and they rust away. Road salt does not help the matter.
