What other long suspension bridges with a top-cable are out there? It seems an unique design.

Multi-span suspension bridges exist in some countries, like Japan and China. I don't know any with a top cable, I think it's inherent to the floating design.

I guess the top cable reduces the pitch movement of each floating pylon (i.e rotation around a horizontal axis at right angles to the bridge). They will help far less regarding yaw and roll, though, but for such movements, in particularly yaw, the deck would be stiffer.

A 'kuldeporten' came down on a truck in the Storehaug Tunnel of riksvei 13. I've seen those in many tunnels, what is their exact function? Something to prevent icing?

Yes, it's to prevent icing. The door prevents cold air draft through the tunnel.

Do they close the doors at night when there's almost no traffic?

They close in the daytime as well, and automatically open when vehicles approach. They're used in tunnels with little traffic, that have bare rock walls. Ice can cause pieces of rock to break off from the tunnel walls.

The highway is not in immediate danger, btw, it will only be buried once a larger part of the mountain falls down ("Mannen" - the man), but as explained above, that is most likely decades away.
Why not blow it up with explosives now?

Because it's seen on as to risky for the crew working on the mountain, and the consequences for the rest of the mountain is unknown. They don't want the whole mountain to fall. Only the part that's known as Veslemannen. Veslemannen is about 200 000 cubic metre. While the whole unstable parts of Mannen is about 10 million cubic metre. They fear that if they use explosives to make Veslemannen fall, much of the unstable parts of Mannen will fall as well. Or at least become more unstable.

There will likely be requirements that construction firms workings on Vegvesenets projects will have use zero-emission construction vehicles from 2019.

2019 is only one year from now (give or take). Do they even exist? Electric dump trucks? Electric excavators? Electric piling rigs?

I think this requirement is not good for competition.

Except toll rings most tolls are in place for only 15 years at a time. And many are also set up to pay for a tunnel or bridge replacing a ferry. Which means that in these circumstances you basically pay the same as you would for the ferry but you don't have to take waiting time into consideration.

The new Beitstadsund Bridge of Fv. 17 near Steinkjer will be constructed by a Chinese construction company; the Sichuan Road and Bridge Group. It seems to be the first time a Chinese construction company is doing a road project in Norway (and perhaps Western Europe for that matter...)
