3. Aurlandsfjellet, the old E16 road.
I think that the road over Aurlandfjellet never was E16. Before the tunnel road, the E16 was routed over the ferry Lærdal-Gudvangen and later Kaupanger-Gudvangen. When the tunnels from Gudvangen to Flåm got ready, the Aurland-Gudvangen route got renumbered to Rv50.

Anyway, my top 10 mountain routes are, not in any order of preference:

- Suleskard+Lysebotn
- E134 Haukeli-Seljestad over the old non-tunnel roads Dyrskar and Røldalsfjellet
- Rv7 Hardangervidda and Måbødalen
- Gol-Aurland-Aurlandsfjellet
- Måløy-Kråkenes+Vestkapp
- Peer Gynt vegen + Jotunheimvegen
- Sognefjellet + Tyin-Årdal-Turtagrø
- Strynefjellet-Nibbeveien-Geiranger-Trollstigen
- Ifjordfjellet+Nordkynnhalvøya
- Varangerhalvøya to Berlevåg

A lot of routes in Southern Norway. Do you have a special commitment to that area?

IMO many can be added to NPRA tourist routes, especially E134 Haukeli-Seljestad and even the present road with tunnels has enough scenery fun for tourists. It is not a mountain road, but has easy access. I also should add Rv 15 on the list of tourist routes. Maybe not so much high mountain excitement as Fv 258, but easier access.

The logic is easy: As I categorized them into mountain routes, I did not include seaside routes as Helgelandkysten, Lofoten, Havøysundsvegen, Lyngen, Atlanterhavsvegen and Stavanger-Bergen-Ålesund. The largest mountains are in the south.

Arrr, I need to save these posts, that is the stuff for Norway holidays for the next 20 years.
(As long as they have not moved the whole road network underground by then)

Thank you guys!

Personally, I would like to keep my favorite roads as peaceful as they are today, so I'll keep my mouth shut ;-) Seriously, Chris is somewhat right that you after a while get numb by driving around in nice scenery. Nature is IMO best experienced far away from any roads, in slow motion either by foot, ski or kayak...

Maybe some road geeks will even go to Norway to look at spectacular tunnels and bridges.

Progress improvements E134 Amot

Although E134 via Røldal will get new long tunnels to overcome snow problems in winter, the present E134 mountain road is still under construction for improvements.
The new Røldal and Haukeli tunnels will be available not earlier than next decade, so it is worth to invest in widening of the existing E134 over Røldal.
Here are photos of the widening to at least 3 lanes and other improvements. Photo session from 15 August 2016. Excuses for the bad photo resolution.

Widening South East of Amot. In future this road will no longer be part of E134, because a new shorter section will be constructed via Rauland to reduce traveling with more than 30 minutes. But even for local traffic the widening is a necessary investment.



Widening South East of Amot, at Vinje Kommune border



Already widened section with central barrier and separated lanes at Amot



Another already widened section with central barrier and separated lanes West of Amot



Small reconstruction site East of Røldal

Rv23 The Oslofjord tunnel is now (finally) free: https://www.regjeringen.no/no/aktuel...ene/id2510061/
There's still a lot of work remaining on this stretch of road, though.

The toll barrier disappears and allows people on both sides of the fjord now a much easier access. That means an increase in traffic volumes and load on the road now that the connection is made free.

It can only be good news, because it will trigger government and NPRA to come with a better tunnel or bridge for the Rv 23.

At practically the same time preparation work is starting on the new 4-lane section of Rv23 Dagslett-Linnes connecting towards E18 and Drammen (via Fv282) at Lierstranda.

Design Western E134 Kongsberg bypass published



The 4.7 km stretch Trollerud Moen-Saggrenda, has now been published on 29/08/2016, the third and last section of 13.2 km new E134 near Kongsberg. The current National Transport Plan requires Drammen-Kongsberg a 4-lane motorway and Kongsberg-Notodden a 3-lane 2+1 road. However in the published design is only a 2-lane grade separated road with two single tube tunnels respectively 300 meters (Moan tunnel) and 450 meters (Vollåstunnelen). The section has one grade separated junction and also 4 bridges. The Saggrenda bridge over both a river and the current E134 is the largest and longest. According to the planning, the whole bypass Kongsberg will be ready at the end of 2019.

Don´t think there ever was a plan building the western part of this project with three lane throughout the section. But have they cut the 1,5km or so passing lane in direction Notodden?

But in the opposite end of this project, I found this text on the projects website: http://www.vegvesen.no/Europaveg/Dam...måsentislegård

If the person who wrote it knew what they wrote, it seems like the four lane section from the east won`t start until the Diseplass junction is passed going west. If thats correct, it really an ridiculous way of saving money! All bridges and structures is gonna be fitted for four lanes anyway if they´re gonna keep the central divider (which does`nt very seem realistic to cut), and cruched stone and asphalt is really not what makes the project expensive. Even the drainage and lighening has to be pretty much of the same dimensions. And when (if) they continue expanding the E134 in direction Drammen i a not to distant future, they will once again have to expand a pretty new road, which means unnecessary extra length of an future construction zone to the east Really hope the text is wrong. Never seen anything else on this.

Kongsberg-Notodden is in the present National Transport Plan. This has been discussed earlier and there has been a latent desire after E134 became main EW road with NPRA predicted AADT > 8000, that Kongsberg-Notodden would be reconstructed as 4-lane motorway:

Motorway with 4-lanes from Diseplass junction to Kongsberg is according to the present National Transport Plan. The designers just did fulfill the requirements of the governance guidelines. Nothing unusual.

Four lane construction is till Trollerud Moen (Kongsberg-West) according to the National Transport Plan, but they really saved money on this section by replacing motorway juntions by 4 roundabouts and the river bridge is without emergency lanes and with a very short curve.

NPRA recommends Rv 52 as second East-West main road



Today, NPRA has advised the government to take Rv 52 over RV. 7, because it is better for economics and effectiveness and ability to serve drivers who cannot use the E134 via Haukeli. Focus on Rv 52 and E134 is a better overall solution, with better efficiency and over a geographically wider area than the Rv 7 can cover. It will also make possible a Bergen Arm to E134 via Haukeli. Rv 7 has the disadvantage that it goes through a National Park with Caribou population and the Hardangervidda is hard to get snow-free in winter.

Rv. 52 is also good for traffic to western Sogn og Fjordane.
