AmiDelf you are wrong.. There are quite many places you can drive in 100 km/h in Norway.

E6 from Vinterbro to Solli, E6 from Oslo to Jessheim, E18 from Asker to Drammen, E18 from Drammen to Kopstad and also the highway connecting E6 and Oslo Airport have all speed limits of 100 km/h.

And the term "highway" is wronly used here. Highway means "riksveg". You guys are talking about Motorways/Expressways.

Not that slow if u take in mind that 120km/h is the speed limit on like 80% of Europe's highways, except Germany where they use no speed limits for highways.

As for norways highways, i really had no idea that they actually have so little of them.

Sadly enough, you'll see 100km/h on a growing amount of motorways in The Netherlands, outside urban areas.

It is such a slow speed! But in Norways case, it's okay, so you can enjoy the scenery

^the traffic is usually going in 110-120 though

We have so bad motorways because all the money has been spent by stupid politicians wanting to build bridges and tunnels in the small places they come from(usually western or northern Norway)

Well in Greece the speed limit on highways is 120(140 in some cases) but the traffic(Cars) is moving a lot higher(140-180).Thats a reason for us having a lot of deaths in our roads though.

Really? I would have thought that a country like Norway would know its priorities.

It's been bettet the last 10-15 years. Infrastructure-projects around Oslo have higher priority now(although most of them are financed by toll-roads). We've got a new motorway through much of Vestfold and Østfold (southwest and southeast of Oslo), and more is under construction. A 40 km motorway between Kristiansand and Grimstad in the south is also under construction.

But the problem is that we are lagging behind, these motorways currently under construction would have been finished 30 years ago had the same area been in Sweden or Denmark.

You may also drive at 140 km/h in Greece? Where would that be?

Yes, but they usually don't bother with people driving 10-20km/h faster than the limit on the high standard motorways, only on the roads of poorer standards, where there are more accidents.

I am sure, I've driven on the roads out of Oslo many times

IN pathe(παθε) motorway, there is a part of the road that speed limit is 140km/h its the part near thessaloniki which is 3 lanes each side.
I dont know if there is anywhere else though.The rule is 120km/h except if u see a sign that indicates a higher speed,can be lower also ofc .

From the construction-phase:
