So why do some toll bridges and tunnels charge for the car and then for the passangers? This is crap why should it matter how many people are in the car? I can understand the per person charge on a ferry but not for a bridge or tunnel.

Is there any other place than Krifast (bridges tunnels around Kristiansund, including E39) who does this? In that case, it has something to do with the ferries that use to run these stretches, but I have never really understood it myself.

I got stung twice yesterday going into Kristiansund via Krifast and leaving via the Atlanterhavstunnelen, if I lived there I'd be made as hell, trapped on the island with no free access. I'd love to know why they did it like that, it's most unfare.

Norway's most beautiful bridges

'Teknisk ukeblad', a Norwegian magazine about engineering, held an online poll for the most beautiful bridges in Norway. The nominees can be found here: http://www.tu.no/bygg/bildeserier/article251579.ece

Hi all,

Been busy, haven't had a chance to post anything here in a couple months, it's good to be back.

Was having a conversation with something recently, and I told them that in 2007, I purchased a UK car and drove it to Norway and back(yes, I had insurance)on my US driver's license(California). He told me that what I did was illegal. I could have rented a car in London and drove it to France, but in no way was I allowed to purchase a British car and drive it to Europe.

I have no idea where else to post this question, so sorry if it's in the wrong area. Anyone know if I was truly in the wrong or does this guy not know what I he's talking about.

If I had been stopped by the police, say in France or The Netherlands, and presented my California license yet with proof that I owned the British car, what would they have possibly done? I am now living in the UK, and have a UK licence, so this wouldn't be an issue for me anymore, but I never gave it any thought until recently!

Thanks for info, I am curious as to whether I broke the law or not! :-) I'll post this question on some of the other motorway threads as well and see what people say.

As long as you had valid insurance, I don't see why not...

I can't really see the problem here. If you've taken up permanent recidency in Norway, I believe you would have faced serious import taxes and possible impoundment of the car. But as a visitor? I can't see that your car's insurance would be any less valid than that of a UK driver, and that's the main issue. Apart from the taxman, that is...

New breathtaking photos of Norways most beautiful roads, the "Tourist roads" from http://www.turistveg.no/ They also serve purpose of regional and local highways in most cases.

Fv44/Fv507, the JŠren coastal highway in southwestern Norway connects several towns toughout the coast region:



Rv13/Fv520, the Ryfylke highway in southwestern Norway, a regional connection north-south trough inner western Norway:




Rv7/Rv13/Fv550, the Hardanger highways in western Norway, shortest route from Bergen to Oslo:





Fv51, Valdresflye mountainpass in eastern Norway, shortcut from Western to Mid-Norway and regional north-south connection for the inner eastern lands, closed during winter:










Fv243, Aurlands mountainpass. Great alternative road instead of the 24km tunnel on Oslo - Bergen highway E16, closed during winter.







E16 can be seen way down below:


Fv13, Gaular mountainpass, part of the inner north-south connection trough western Norway:







Fv55, Sogne mountain pass. Significant east-west connection. Winterclosed:











Fv258, Old Stryne mountainpass, alternative to tunnels on east-west connection Rv15, winterclosed:







Rv15 down below:


Fv27, Rondane mountainpass, north-south connection in eatern Norway:






Fv63, Geiranger mountainpass, north-south connection in mid-norway, winterclosed:



Fv63 continues up the mountain in the background:






Fv64/Fv663/Fv238/Fv235, Atlanterhavs coastal highway, parts of it is intercity highway between Kristiansund and Molde:





Fv17, Helgelands coast south, coastal north-south connection in Northern Norway:




Fv17, Helgelands coast north:





E10, Lofoten, mainroad trough the archipelago in northern Norway:






Fv82, And°ya, main road north-south trough the Vesterňlen archipelago:





Fv86/Fv862/Fv277, Senja, northern coastal highway for Norways 2nd largest island:






Fv889, Hav°ysund. Only road leading to this remote fishingvillage:







E75/Fv341, Varanger, leading to easternmost point in Norway connecting some of the "larger" towns in Finnmark county:

Hardanger:





Valdresflya:

Very nice. I just wish they'd spend the same effort on fixing and building actual roads.

If you move to Norway you have 12 months before you have to register the car with Norwegian plates and pay the import taxes on it.

There is no issue about buying a car in the UK and driving it around Europe, thousands of New Zealanders and Australians do it every year, very few of them have UK drivers licenses, I've never heard of anyone having a problem.

I wish they would just add some passing lanes, not too hard to do and would stop people dangerously passing, trucks, bobils and camping vogons.

Exactly. Take the southern part of the E6 (Trondheim - Lillehammer) for example, which is a dreadful drive IMO. Ideally, it would become a motorway, but a better alignment with more frequent passing lanes would help so much. Right now there's like two or three stretches with passing lanes for 400km. That's really not difficult nor very expensive, and should be an easy sell to a safety-concerned government. I know they've been adding some 1x2 better-aligned stretches primarily because of safety concerns, but why can't they add some goddamn passing lanes? The non-motorway parts of the A13 in Switzerland, which is a wonderful drive, could serve as an example.

They are upgrading and building new roads for 13 km north of Lillehammer atm - i think it will be 2+2 and 2+1 all the way. But i think more passing lanes should be added to road-projects, particulary E6 south of Melhus for example...

Same at Rv3 north of Elverum where they're doing lots of straghtenings and making new shoulders. Why not just ad a lane or two, for practicly no money at all?

Because that would mean a call for another tube to places like Mager°ya

Not many posts here currently, quite fitting to the low construction activity outside the south-eastern intercity triangle at the moment.

This is a video describing the latest developments on the E6 around Soknedalen, south of Trondheim.
http://www.tronderbladet.no/tbtv/?id...*******&page=0

Mostly in Norwegian, but showing videos of the current miserable situation and renderings for the current (?) plans. It would be tragedy if this road is built without a center fence and passing opportunities, but I guess the most likely outcome is that the whole project is delayed by the municipal council because the local shops do not want to lose the through traffic. There is also something called funding that needs to be sorted out....

Well it is that (monster)bridge project in the west, that's going on, but it seems as most forumers discussing Norwegian highways, hangs out in the Norwegian section, and thereby that's where most of the updates will come.

E18 in Aust-Agder/Telemark seems to be a hot potato these days, though...
