I think it will be fine. It will probably look like something similar to Atlanterhavsveien.

Riksvei 509

A new interchange of riksvei 509 near the Stavanger Airport was inaugurated on 16 June. It's about 1 more kilometer of quasi motorway.

Fylkesvei 714

Fylkesvei 714 is quite a long county road, being the only outlet for the municipalities of Hitra and Snillfjord. As these municipalities lack a central town of significance, people have to travel long distances to the nearest somewhat larger town. Orkanger has a population of 7,800 and is the nearest town of any significance for villages on Hitra and Frøya, which may be as far as 140 kilometers away on narrow and curvy roads. Trondheim is another 50 kilometers further.

The next stage is a new route of Fv. 714 in the Åstfjord area. This project could begin by late 2017.

It is a 5.6 kilometer segment of Fv. 714, with a planned completion in 2020. It will reduce the distance by 6 kilometers.

* Slørdal Tunnel (2650 m)
* Åstfjord Bridge (735 m)
* Mjøne Tunnel (770 m)

The proposed new four-line highway between Kristiansand Vest and Mandal Øst have now been approved. It will be built with a 110 km/h speed limit. Nye Veier AS is behind the project.

Hordfast will be cheaper. The price is reduced from NOK 43 bill. to 35 bill. New Bjørnafjord brigde estimate is NOK 17 bill. (down from 20-25 bill). Less need of steal explains some of the cut. Opening within 2030 seems very realistic now

Just to clarify, two parts have opened (11,6km in total). They're parts of the project E6 Helgeland Nord

1. Tjæraskaret-Eiterå north of Mo I Rana (7,3km)






2. Urlandå-Skamdal south of Mo I Rana (4,3km)



According to the article, 10km more will be completed this autumn.

I have been unable to find pictures of the completed road, but here is one of the stretch immediately before the tunnel during the construction period.
