Toll with "Nye veier" is similar to other projects. I.e, the tolls contribute with a partial coverage of the investment costs over a limited number of years.

Hey, I live up in Steigen. I use Telia and I have 4G wherever I am, in the mountains, on the ocean, at home, anywhere. And in cities I get 4G+. So it's not bad at all in the rural areas. It's gotten a lot better over the years.

The people I know that have Telenor seems to have worse coverage overall, and more expensive data. So Telia all the way.

E6 Soknedal

A 993 million NOK contract was signed yesterday for the construction of the Soknedal bypass of E6, which is some 60 kilometers south of Trondheim. It includes a 3.6 kilometer tunnel. It is a 2/3 lane road with a speed limit of 90 km/h (80 km/h in tunnel). The tunnel is quite spacious with a 10.5 m profile. Construction will commence in September, the bypass will open in Fall 2020.

New Varoddbrua on E-18 in Kristiansand. The caissons for the construction of the bridge pillars have been completed in the dry dock at Andøya, Kristiansand.

How the bridge will look when completed:

The building company uses the same IKEA color scheme. Funny coincidence, only that they deliver much bigger objects to assemble :O

Are the toll exemption rules for electric cars nationally uniform?

It's now up to local municipalities and road owners whether they want to give toll exemptions to electric cars or not, but they are not allowed to have a price higher than half the ones of fossil fueled cars. I do not believe there are any places that introduced tolls for electric cars yet but Oslo will introduce tolls for them starting in 2019.

Bergen will also introduce tolls for electric cars once their share rises over 20%, which they expect to happen by 2019 or so.

Do they have mobility 4-wheel vehicles here in Norway? I mean: ~50km/h maximum speed electric vehicles meant to help people with mobility issues to go around, without having to rely on a full-blown automobile requiring a license, using bike paths and local streets only?

But there is no road toll on that ferry, right? On Flakk-Rørvik (Trondheim-Fosen), electric cars have to pay the full ferry fare (152 NOK for <6 m vehicles), but do not have to pay the rather high road tolls of the Fosen road package (92 NOK). If you prepay multiple travels the costs are reduced by 50 %. Another interesting aspect of that ferry connection is that the fare and toll are paid using autopass (electronic tolling). Hence, passengers and bikes can take the ferry free of charge. For commuters it is hence quite popular to have a car on each shore.

Do you mean like this?


I think the speedlimit in order to be classified as a wheel chair is 10 km/h. ATVs with higher speed (or that is heavier) would require driver licences, but not necessarily car. See SVV for details: https://www.vegvesen.no/en/driving+l...itled+to+drive

50 km/h is imo quite (too) fast on bike paths and local streets.

We have these things, of course, but they do require a licence.

I do not think these are particularly meant for people with mobility issues, they are not allowed on bike paths, and, as far as I have experienced, not commonplace in Norway, but mostly found in remote smaller communities places / islands without proper roads, the Buddy electric vehicle being an exception.

True, they are not particularly common, and they are in most senses including legal ones more "car" than "moped"... which begs the question who would want to use them at all..? Still, some do, although rarely in anything resembling a safe manner...
