Photos Rv 27 near Rondane National Park

Rv 27 is a road north of Lillehammer between E6 and Rv 3 and just east of Rondane National Park with amazing scenery. Rv 27 can be used with Rv 29 as a shorter road from Lillehammer to Trondheim.









The village of Folldal, the end of Rv 27 to the North. From here, you can go west with Rv 29 to E6 at Hjerkin or east to Rv 3 at Alvdal.



Rv 27 is one of the 18 national tourist routes and is open all year although Ringebu-Muen can be hard to drive during short periods in winter.

Riksvei 15

Some photos of Riksvei 15 from Stryn to Langvatnet where Fv. 63 to Geiranger turns off.

It is mostly a decent road where you can drive 80 km/h on long stretches. The tunnel segment near Strynfjellet is a bit outdated, the tunnels are relatively narrow compared to the rest of the route.

Well, to see awesome scenery, I am willing to make a sacrifice to less comfortable roads. No guts, no glory

Not only sad for shopping in Sweden, but also bad for new investments in road infrastructure. All ministries have to save money, especially for new big projects. It will be a challenge for the Minister of Transport, Ketil Solvik-Olsen to get then new Hordfast project of E39 Haugesund-Bergen approved. There is a big chance it will be cancelled.

Since this year, Norway has true Design-Build-Maintain motorway plans. It is done by NyeVeier, a company owned by the Ministry of Transport and headquartered in Kristiansand. http://www.nyeveier.no/nye-veier-as-...i-forste-fase/ Startup investment budget is estimated 130 billion. New Roads will be a lean and efficient organization builder who will build over 500 km highway, mostly 4-lane motorways.

NyeVeier is responsible for the construction of the E39 Kristiansand-Stavanger, to be completed in 2023. Another Design-Build-Maintain motorway plan is the Rogfast project, the E39 motorway Stavanger-Haugesund also ready in 2023. Together, the construction of the E39 motorway Kristiansand-Haugesund is one of the biggest motorway construction projects in Europe with a length of 315 km.

It is not true that Norway only does slow motorway construction with a period over a decade.

Progress E134 motorway by-pass Kongsberg August 2016



A new section of E134 is under construction to cut the road via Kongsberg from Damåsen (Kongsberg East) to Saggrenda (Kongsberg-West). Total costs are 2.9 billion.



There are four 4-lane motorway tunnels planned with profile 2 x T 9.5. The first is the Kongsberg tunnel, 2000 m (under construction since 2015)



Svartås tunnel, 1500 m (under construction since 6 August 2016)



The other tunnel under construction since 6 August 2016 is the Trollerudmoen tunnel, 320 m. When the preparations are ready, they will create the tunnel from both sides. Also planned is the Vollås tunnel,480 m.
Note the rocky ground in Norway, compared with Sweden. One of the reasons that motorway construction is more expensive in Norway.



The full motorway section goes from Damåsen (Kongsberg East) to Tislegård over 5 km with one junction at Diseplass.





The Damåsen bridge over a local road has been completed in rough construction.



Outside this new motorway section, there is much discussion about the rest of the bypass to Saggrenda (Kongsberg-West). That part has five roundabouts on the 4-lane roads between the tunnels. They were designed in the time that it was popular for NPRA to build roundabouts. State Secretary Bård Hoksrud said that the new roundabouts in Kongsberg are not appropriate.

It is good to see that the government decision of 1975 to make E16 the main road Bergen-Oslo had such a great impact on the improvements of road quality. The 26 km toll-free Laerdal tunnel will be till the far foreseeable future Norway’s longest mountain tunnel. Even when E16 has lost its status to main road Bergen-Oslo to E134 Haukeli in 2015, it will be the favorite road for many drivers in combination with Rv 52, especially for trucks and people of the North. Till E134 via Haukeli finally will take over much of the traffic next decade.

Norway has road runways for aircraft at roads for small aircraft and vertical landing fighters at large department stores, such as Bauhaus on Liertoppen. Furthermore, within 24 hours sections of motorways can be converted to runways for fighter jets.

Small aircraft of the Norwegian Air Force, such as Cessna O-1 Bird Dog observation plane from Field Artillery used Habornveien just east of Kongsten fast as improvised airstrip. That is a best practice. See http://www.birddog.no. The planes operate with typical Norwegian outfit, like skiing in winter and wheels summer and can use runways from only from improvised field airports (roads, grasslands, fields etc).
Within NATO, Norway will facilitate other Air Forces to land on Norwegian roads, such as Harrier and AV-8B. IKEA shops are a good example to facilitate such a runway for Vertical / Short Take Off and Landing V / STOL aircraft . The building itself is shed or camouflage. Harrier been operated from roads and fields stripes on exercises in Norway. Norwegian F-16’s have been equipped with brake parachute. The idea here was to spread the fighters on several bases in case of attack. In time of crisis any Norwegian motorway with a straight length of 1 km in a flat area can be used . You can check out for yourself that there are many sections in Norway that will meet this requirement. Then a Norwegian motorway can be converted the same way as in Germany to a military air base that is able to launch F-16’s and F-35’s.

Ryfast, Stavanger

The breakthrough of the Hundvåg Tunnel in Stavanger will be achieved tonight. It appears to be the eastern segment between Buøy and Hundvåg, as this tunnel is being bored at 3 locations.

Speaking of Ryfast I found this interesting

https://www.nrk.no/rogaland/klarsign...ast-1.12383064

The KS2 report for Ryfast actually stated that if the the toll for the Solbakk tunnel became high, it would be feasible commercially for ferries, and it looks like that it might happen between Lauvvika and Oanes.

For some people, a private ferry may be interesting in case of high toll costs. Other people may find a tunnel claustrophobic. However the tunnel toll costs may adapt to such a level that for most people it becomes the most interesting way. The tunnel is so much faster both in terms of crossing and loading. Plus it is smooth which you cannot guarantee with the sea crossing. In bad weather the tunnel will be always preferable. We have seen the tunnel vs ferry competition on Dover and Calais between the UK and France. The tunnel is a winner.

Another thing is that when the government had forbidden a private ferry, we come in the situation of a guided State economy. Norway doesn’t want to be identified with that. In an open market private initiative should be possible.

In a somewhat similar scenario, Scandlines want to compete with the Femern Belt Tunnel between Denmark and Germany once it is completed. They can only compete on price, while the current fares for the ferry are already higher than the projected tolls. An accounting report considered it unrealistic that Scandlines could compete with the tunnel. Even if the fares are slightly lower, the far majority would still prefer the tunnel because it is more convenient and faster.

Scandlines claims that they want to continue the ferry service. Scandlines real agenda is in best case to avoid the the Femern Tunnel completely or as second best to postpone it as much as possible. They are doing it by supporting various anti-tunnel groups (incl. financial support) and by attacking the viability of the tunnel, including the claims that they will continue the service. Scandlines is owned by a British Capital Fund, and since the current ferry service is a cash cow (and a monopoly- since they own the port facilities on both sides) they off course want to keep this situation for as long as possible.

We had the same situation before opening of the Great Belt Connection. We had to operatores of ferry services - one state owned (what was become Scandlines, which was then privatized) and a private operator. Prior to opening of the connection the private operator claimed that they wanted to continue their service after opening of the fixed link. I can't remember how long they continued after the actual opening or they actually discontinued the service prior to opening of the service. I bet the same thing will happen at Femern. Using the fixed link compared to the ferry service is so much more convenient that Scandlines don't stand a chance. No need to book, no waiting time, 10 minutters and not 60 min., take your break when you want etc.
