Well, I thought that would be quite obvious.

The Gaularfjellet viewpoint has won the concrete award for 2016. It's located on Riksvei/Fylkesvei 13, just north of the Sognefjord. It is the third time since 2012 that a national tourist route rest area has won the award.

E39 Romsdalsfjord Crossing

The cost of of the Møreaksen project near Molde has been reduced by 1.9 billion NOK (€ 210 million). The new cost is projected to be 14.5 billion NOK (€ 1.6 billion).

It's a huge project, it includes a very large suspension bridge (1625 m main span!) and a 15.5 kilometer long twin-tube tunnel.

The construction time is estimated at 5-6 years.

The Julsund Bridge will be similar to the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark, which is presently the longest suspension bridge in Europe. In fact, the Julsund Bridge will have a 1 meter longer span than the Storebælt, making it the longest in Europe.

E39 Romsdalsfjord Crossing

An English-language video about the planned Romsdalsfjord Crossing. It's one of the largest upcoming construction projects in all of Europe.

The soon-to-be-opened E6 from Frya to Sjoa in Gudbrandsdalen contains the Harpe Bridge, the first extradosed bridge in Scandinavia.

I don`t feel to conspiratorially when I think that might be on purpose just to get a record

E6, Alta

The prime minister opened a 13 kilometer new stretch of E6 west of Alta today. It includes two tunnels, the Melsvik Tunnel and the Storvika Tunnel. This reduces the travel time on E6 to Alta. The road is designed for 80 km/h.

The 2.5 kilometer long Melsvik Tunnel.


The 1.2 kilometer long Storvika Tunnel.

So the Norwegian are not afraid of ribbon-cutting under heavy snowfall...

Norwegian Wikipedia suggests it may be exit 96, but on my photos from June 2016, there were no exit numbers on the entire E18 motorway stretch in the Askim-Mysen area.

How many days, on average, are road links between Bergen and Olso closed due to snowfall or other weather hazards?

Also, I notice there is not single obvious driving route between Oslo and Bergen, there are many options with similar distances. Even avoiding Fv7 through Hardangervidda, there are still many permutations possible. There are also southern routes via E134... but slightly longer.

-----------------------------------

Secondary question: what is a reputable site where I can find the price of used cars in Norway?

That's supposed to change.

Finn.no. Select "Bil" (Car), then "Biler i Norge" (Cars in Norway)

So what is the best driving routes between Bergen and Olso (for someone who wants to travel from one point to another, not to tour the region)? Best as in: less unannounced disruptions, less closures, more predictable travel times... Is it E16 all the way? Or Rv7 then Rv52 via Gol.

Most trucks use riksvei 52 through Hemsedal. Overall volumes are the lowest on E16 across Filefjell, with Riksvei 7 across Hardangervidda between those.

Though none of these routes have traffic volumes that lead to the typical convoy driving like you have in much of Europe on two-lane corridors without motorways. Rv. 52 Hemsedal is the busiest of the northern routes to Bergen and barely cracks the 1,200 vehicles per day threshold.

Alright. I thought E16 would be the busiest route and Rv50 the least busy. Thanks for the info.

I contacted them (both the NPRA and Directory of Public Roads) way back in the days to update those numbers and at that time they said 96 was a proposed number and that the final numbers (descending from 100 at Vinterbro) would be put in place when the entire road from the border to the junction with E 6 was done.

I have included their reply which also includes interesting bits about the junction numbering for other roads, including E 39, at a time long before the now proposed coastal highway.

Hei!

Takk for fornuftig innspill på kryssnummereringen på E18 Vinterbro - Ørje. Foreløpig plan er at krysssnummereringen skal begynne på 100 etter Vinterbro. Det ligger noen faktorer til grunn for nummereringen av kryss. En av disse faktorene er at det ikke skal være kryss i samme område som har samme nummer. Dersom vi skulle telle nedover fra Vinterbro på E18, vil neste kryss på E18 og på E6 få samme nummer og de fire kryssene på E18 som ligger i Akershus (Vinterbro Ø, Nygårdskrysset, Holstad og Kråkstad) vil få samme nummerering som 4 andre kryss i Akershus på E6. Dette kan gjøre skiltingen i området mellom disse kryssene vanskelig og forvirrende.

Kryssnummereringen på E6 mellom Minnesund og Trondheim er fastlagt og er også delvis ferdig skiltet. Her er kryssnumrene stigende i retning fra Oslo og opp til grense Sør-Trøndelag. Etter fylkesgrensa vil nummereringen begynne på 1 igjen. Her er det ikke planer om planskilte kryss før man er godt inne i fylket, så nummereringen som foreløpig er bestemt fra Melhus og nordover, begynner på nummer 27.

[...]

Når du spør om E39 er det ikke så lett å vite hvor du mener. Den strekker seg fra Kristiansand til Klett (sør for Trondheim) og har svært varierende standard. Deler av denne veien vil aldri få planskilte kryss og derfor heller ikke kryssnummer. Kryssene i Sør-Trøndelag har fått foreslåtte nummer fra 99 til 94, i Vest-Agder er det foreslått 1-19 og i Rogaland er det foreslått 1-16. Men når disse kryssene blir skiltet, har jeg ikke oversikt over.

Med hilsen
Stine Forsbak
I hope you guys bear with me on not translating this but I believe that the most interesting parts should be quite understandable.

My knowledge of Norwegian has improved to the point that I basically understand what he says, without needing to put it through Google Translate. Norwegian has many elements similar to English, German and also Dutch (for example, foreløpig = voorlopig in NL)

^ Follows the vegvesen tradition of making weird number schemes, especially the part of using same numbers for exists in V-Agder and Rogaland for the same ekspressway.

E16 is being completly rebuilt for the most difficult mountain pass, the last piece opening in the fall of next year. E16 is generally considered less risky for closures in case of blizzards. With this new road it is planned to stay open no matter what.


New E16 Filefjell mountain pass

Now if the weather forecast is good, no need to take the detour afaik.

Riksvei 4, Gran

A stretch of four-lane highway opens to traffic tomorrow in Gran municipality. It runs from the Lunner border to Jaren, except for the 1.7 kilometer tunnel around Gran, which will open in summer 2017. Tolling will also not commence until that time.

This indicates that a 2.6 km southern segment and 4.1 km northern segment opens tomorrow.
