The crisis in the private construction marked turns out to be positive for Norwegian roads, a bid of Rv7 west of Hĝnefoss are about 70 % of what Vegvesenet estimated:

http://www.vareveger.no/nyheter/article209439.ece

The 6,3 km long road will be 2 lanes with divider in the middle, planned to open in 2012.

Low standard on this part of Rv7 today:

That bridge is a classic! A one-laner that gets pretty congested on sunday evenings, especially in winter.

Yeah, Ingeniĝren has really revived this thread.

There has been another accident in a Norwegian motorway tunnel, this time the 900 m long Follo-tunnel on E6 south of Oslo (northbound), where a Lithuanian truck crashed into the tunnel wall and the driver tragically died. The truck caught fire and the tunnel will be closed for at least a month.

Well, at least it didn't end worse, since it's such a new and high-standard tunnel. Though I suspect the road there to be a bit weird/dangerous as it is VERY common to read about people hitting the wall at this point..

Here is just a small update on E6 Sĝr Steinkjer. Looks like mankind is finally starting to get some controll of the mountain.







E6, cross to Riksvei 761 to Inderĝy.

I'd love to add Norway to my site, but since I haven't ever visited Norway myself, I need someone to pass me his / her own pictures. For copyright reasons, I can't just pick the pictures from this thread and add them to my website.

Any volunteers? Just send me a PM

New Strindheim intersection in eastern Trondheim scheduled for completion in 2014 will have 3 levels, the bottom level is E6, for trough-trafic only. The middle level is a roundabout for local trafic with ramps to E6, and on top is a another round-about for PT, and soft trafic:

All 3 levels illustrated:


2 top levels surface:


Acces to E6:

As already mentioned by Ingeniĝren the major motivation would be to separate the PT and softer traffic from the rest. That would not be possible in a single roundabout. In addition, I am not sure whether a single roundabout would be feasable because of the height difference between the tunnel at this point and the surface. When the tunnel is completed, the surface road towards downtown (i.e. west) will only be open to PT.

As already mentioned by Ŝróndeimr, the price tag of this project is quite hefty. A major reason is that the section towards the western (downtown) opening of the tunnels goes through a layer of quick clay, and cut and cover has been ruled out because the urban (and partly historic) area above the tunnels.

The name of the tunnel will be Strindheimtunnelen. IMO it should have been Strindheimstunnelen, but the word of that damn government appointed "Navnekonsulent" has supreme power in these issues.

It looks like the truck actually hit the crash barrier before the tunnel. The temperature inside the tunnel was estimated to be 1400-1500 C during the fire. Thank God the Norwegian tunnels no longer have flammable insulation plates.

I trust it is our correspondent Ŝróndeimr we are seeing up there. When are you going to post the pictures ?

Is that ment sarcastic? Many older tunnels still do have these uncovered insulation plates... It's been all over media lately due to this accident.

No, I actually thought most of them was substituted with more firesafe variants or properly covered concrete by now, at least in the tunnels with high traffic, but obviously I was wrong

List of road being transfered to the counties in 2010:

http://www.regjeringen.no/pages/2191...egoversikt.pdf

Around 17 000 km riksvei is transfered.

1350 km of todays white riksveier stays with the state.

Counties will recieve 6,9 milliard kroner extra in 2010 as compensation:

What are the consequences for the road numbering? The French transfer of RN roads to RD roads resulted into a numbering-disaster.
