E6 speed limit

The speed limit will go up to 110 km/h on a 70 kilometer stretch of E6 north of Oslo.

Natt til 22. april vil nye E6 mellom Tangenkrysset i Stange og Grankrysset i Sørum skiltes om, og en strekning på rundt 70 kilometer vil få en økning fra 100 kilometer i timen til 110.

The new junction between E6 and highway 25 at Hamar (Åkersvika). The junction will be part of the E6 motorway Kolomoen - Moelv construction (ca. 42 km), which may start in 2017 and be finished in 2019. Last regulation plan, E6 Kåterud - Arnkvern (the Hamar part), on hearing now:

The Helgeland bridge was voted the most beautiful bridge in Norway by the leading Norwegian engineering magazine some years ago. I have a feeling the Hardanger bridge might take the award today though.

The Norwegian government is finally beginning to plan long term, but unfortunately only on a few selected road sections far. The construction of the following roads are assured long-term 130 BNOK financing during the next 20 years by the establishment of a new government-owned road construction company:

E39 Lyngdal – Ålgård
E18/E39 Kristiansand – Lyngdal
E18 Langangen – Grimstad
E6 Kolomoen – Moelv
E6 Moelv – Ensby
E6 Ulsberg – Melhus
E6 Ranheim – Åsen

(Map here: https://www.hoyre.no/admin/filestore...ngS-Norge..pdf)

This is something new in Norway as most projects so far have depended on year-to-year priorities in the national budget, and the new way of organizing road construction will enable more long-term planning over larger distances.


More for the English speaking audience here.

E16

I found some more footage of E16 which I filmed last year. This is E16 from Voss to the Gudvanga Tunnel. It traverses through varied landscapes on this 35 km stretch, with pastures, lakes, rivers, steep rockwalls and high waterfalls.

Nice video. Driving through the Nerøy Valley is indeed something else, even for a Norwegian! Me and a few friends got stuck there due to a minor accident in the Gudvangentunnel around a kilometer in front of us, for around an hour last summer. 30 degrees and sun. Wasn't exactly the worst hour of my life

Some help would be appreciated.

Are studded tyres allowed now 1) on mountains, or Filefjell or Hardangervidda in particular; or 2) in Norway in general, if going to cross (or having crossed) Filefjell or Hardangervidda?

I don't ask about the law, I ask about common sense. I have visited Norway quite a few times in winter (with studded tyres) as well as summer (with summer tyres) but never before in early May.

It's allowed, and you're expected to drive according to road conditions, IE it may be necessary to use studded tyres if weather requires it.

For road conditions in mountain crosses, check this link: http://www.vegvesen.no/trafikk/mobil/?report=604

Nice photo. How many people live in such a typical house? They seem quite big.

Some of the houses in this picture are single family houses/villas/mansions, while some are divided into apartments. These neighbourhoods (Våland at the bottom, and Eiganes at the top) are two of the traditional, wooden neighbourhoods, and enjoy some regulatory protection. They are also among the most expensive parts of Stavanger. You can actually spot the most expensive house sold in Stavanger.

IIRC, Orknøygata 18 was sold for about 30M NOK.

Thanks. But your link says that Filefjell is closed...? I knew there were some works but didn't expect them to close it entirely.

Bus lanes are not automatically availble for electric cars anymore. The government decided that it will be up to the local authorities to ban or allow electric cars from bus lanes.

I suppose this could mean a major increase in traffic congestion, as some bus lanes were quite full of electric cars which may now have to move into the regular lanes.

Congested bus lanes is mostly a problem in the Oslo-region. It's perhaps more important that the counties will get the power to decide whether or not electric cars will pay on toll roads. Ferries will continue to be free, and there won't be any taxes and fees when buying an electric car.

I recommend taking the detour over 53 via Øvre Årdal. A nice and frightening descent.

I drove some of Fv. 53 last year. Very scenic indeed. This is also the recommended detour for local traffic. Long-distance traffic could drive via Hemsedal.
