The plan is (or was) to rebuild the pavements into bus lanes as soon a new pedestrian and bike route was built, but this plan has not been prioritized in "Oslopakke 3"

A new law allowing taxing of congested roads to reduce traffic:

On November 7th, 2011, 19 kilometers of E6 will open to traffic between Dal and Minnesund. Is this a motorway?

Yes, it has 100km/h limit and looks like this - it's a widening of the old Olympic highway:

Plans are to continue north with motorway standard untill Øyer with a round-about only for Rv4 intersection.

Yellow plates meaning they don't pay any road-tax or import tax...

On another note, here is a comparison of Rv4 in Nittedal:

Before:


After:


That extra lane was very much needed as aadt reaches 16000, but vegvesen removed it to save money and claims the climb isn't steep enough to require passing lane with todays standards. (The expressway was constructed in 2003.) Speedlimit is still 80km/h.

Sometimes I wonder if the employees of Vegvesenet and vegdirektoratet are mentally challenged.

E39 Eikås tunnel

1,5 km of new 4-lane E39 is out for bids in Bergen construction period spring 2012 - spring 2014. Including a flyover crossing E16 round-about. Altough this may become a local road already in 2017 when Nyborg tunnel is expected completed.

Layout for registrered vehicles not accessing public roads. Including tractors, snowmobiles, harbour and airport vehicles, do not pay road tax and lack registration tag. Reason why these plates are in Svalbard is the road system is private. Zn is the area code.

Right, when they are "imported" on the mainland they get normal norwegian plate with the same registration of the black one

19 kilometers of E6 opens today as a motorway between Dal and Minnesund.

Aftenbladet has an article about it:
