Not necessarily in English, and the context has that the road that is the object of the sentence "In Karesuando, the road ends close to the road E8." is 'Swedish national road 45' that has been the object of the other sentences in the paragraph. The road is synonymous with the number here!

However, even if you refuse to take that definition, the road definitely doesn't go to Finland - it carries on (as R99 and as, for a few km, a continuation of Laestadiuvegen) to Muodoslompolo where it ends at a T-junction. There is a road to Finland from the end of the E45, but is it not the same one (it's a side turn, has a different name, etc).
Quote:
The proposal text gives an impression that road in Karesuando is a dead end, like the North Cape, for example.
As a native English speaker, it definitely doesn't.

And given they explicitly talk about the E8 "close", that hardly seems like a dead end, or certainly not a permanent one. If the UNECE actually wanted the routes to join up they'd have asked about some sort of way of crossing across the border to the E8 and/or whether they had talked with Finland about extending the E45 to the E8. Seems like they didn't care!

E6 Sørkjosen, Troms

The tunnel breakthrough of the Sørkjosen Tunnel on E6 in Troms is planned for next Wednesday, 21 September. It is a 4.6 kilometer long tunnel. It is planned to open in late 2017 / early 2018.

Photos Ryfylke tourist road

National Tourist Road Ryfylke via Rv 13 and Fv 520 has been extended with a new attraction near the old zinc mines near Sauda. NPRA has opened this tourist attraction on 8 September 2016. Here some photos of this tourist road from Stavanger to Røldal. One of the more popular tourist roads.

I want to visit that area on my next trip to Norway

So far I've been in the area of Rv. 7 and E16 in 2014 and the area between Sognefjord & Trondheim in 2016. So the next time I want to visit a more southern region.

This area is on my list as well, but it's almost as far away for me as it is for you. It would take me almost 16 hours to drive to Sauda.

E6 Mjøsa

I filmed E6 along Lake Mjøsa in June. It's one of the most scenic motorways in Norway.

Do you know why they used pre-rusted barriers on this stretch of road? It looks like an old motorway in Italy.

Only A22 in Italy has such barriers, they're rusted on purpose, maybe because they aestetically fit better in nature compared to shiny steel ones.

All bigger highway projects in Norway have a "style manual". In this particular project, Corten steel was chosen because it was believed to blend better with the the landscape around it. However, the corrosion resistance was less than expected, especially in locations where water collects, and ahead most Norwegian roads will continue using traditional galvanized, or in some cases painted, steel.

Tunnel breakthrough on E6 at Røssvoll

The breakthrough on a new tunnel on E6 at Røssvoll north of Mo I Rana in Nordland was completed earlier this month.


Photo: Statens Vegvesen

The tunnel as well as some widening of the existing road and some in new alignment are part of the the 5,19 billion NOK project E6 Helgeland



The tunnel and the new road are set out to be completed in 2018 and will replace one of the worst parts of E6 in Nordland, which I've had the pleasure of driving myself.

So it's not just Molde Politi driving around in ancient Volvo V70's, we also have an even older Ford Mondeo. I can't understand why a country as wealthy as Norway doesn't buy police cars on a rolling basis, 10 year old or older vehicles have no place in a police force.

That Street View-picture is from 2010.

Riksvei 3

The Rv.3 / Rv. 25 upgrade from Løten to Elverum.



The 2x2 segment is not very long. Too bad there will be a simple roundabout at Elverum, instead of an interchange with Rv. 3 being the through route.

They're going to build a lot of small arch bridges for this project.

We hoped Rv 3 would be constructed as a full 2x2 motorway all the way to Trondheim. What we get is a crippled road with roundabouts and 1+1 stretches. Doesn't the government takes Rv 3 serious as a long distance road? Didn't they learn from the annoying roundabouts in Kongsberg on E134? Here we go again: just local road improvements as in the previous decades

Why they're building E6 motorway north of Lillehammer? Some time ago there was a post saying that Rv3 is the main road Oslo-Trondheim and a future motorway between the two cities would follow that route.

It suggests that NPRA with silent approval of the government want to upgrade the E6 and not the Rv3. Last update plans of Rv3 are below expectations and seem to limit attraction of Rv3. There is much more focus on upgrading E6. The only missing link for an grade separated E6 expressway Oslo-Trondheim seems to be passing the Dovre plateau. Perhaps E6 is more interesting because it covers a wider and more dense populated area. However, some expensive tunnels may be needed to mitigate the attraction of Rv3.

Everything written into the internet is not necessarily true.
