It's known as carpool lane in English

You're absolutely right. In Norway, we don't post shortish motorway-quality sections as motorways. The road in the pictures will probably get a motorway classification when the rest of the new E39 south of Bergen eventually is built.

I guess. But then again it's not logical that the Ċsaneveien (E39 and E16) north of downtown Bergen is classified motorway, as well as Rv555 to the west and the Ringvei Vest from west to south-west. Politicians

Why just not signpost the roads that qualify for motorway as motorway?

Actually, I think the official policy is that sections shorter than about 5 kms aren't considered motorways. You'll see exactly the same south of Trondheim and on the new E16 in Bĉrum, for instance. Curiously enough, the Fjellinjen tunnel in Oslo used to have motorway status even though it's only about 2 kms. However, with the gradual opening of the Bjĝrvika tunnel, the motorway signs have been replaced by expressway ones...

E6 Sandmoen-Tonstad
First phase of the new 9.6km long E6 between Jaktĝyen and Tonstad south of Trondheim. I made a large rendering (the map) for those who are
interested inseeing the details. The original plans are available at Vegvesen.no.

Jaktöjen-Tonstad is the southern entrance on E6 to Trondheim. The congestion on the 2*1 road is massive at rush hours. The current entrance road(Jaktöjen-Tonstad) is however quite new, built in the early 90:ies IIRC bypassing southern village areas.

More illustrations can be seen here(krysstype G = junction model that was selected, H was scrapped).

SINTEF and NorNet is making some grand plans for a truly unique bridge between Bĝ and Hadsel in Nordland. The bridge
will be 3.8km long. Wind, wave and tide-turbines will be built on the bridge making the bridge producing a whole
lot of renewable energy!

The bridge will be very useful for the 2 800 people living in the municipality of Bĝ in Vesterċlen. A bridge here will
shorten the road from the town of Bĝ with 2 hours of driving.

There is a gap on the main north-south road (E6) there: http://maps.google.ch/maps?f=q&sourc...,1.229095&z=10

There are plans to build a tunnel or a bridge there?

No, the stretch is too long and the fjord is too deep. A bridge would have to have a 3km long span, a tunnel would have to go 400m-700m below surface (deepest tunnel today goes 287m below surface).

But this is only the sub-sea tunnels, there are far more tunnels, and longer tunnels going through our mountains. But still, we have more bridges! http://www.lotsberg.net/data/norway/list.html
