Exactly, most projects aren't motorway or motortrafficway - i may add these motortrafficways for 2012 (not sure if the shorter projects will be signed as such):

E6 Øyer - Tretten 13,5km 2+1 motortrafficway
Rv510 Solasplitten 4km 1+1 motortrafficway
Rv47 Norheim - Raglamyr 1,5km 1+1 motortrafficway

E 6 Gråmyra in Nord-Trøndelag replace a 1,3 km gap between two existing motortrafficways, but does sadly have a roundabout in the middle.

E 6 Sparbu - Vist (1,5 km extension of existing motortrafficway) in Nord-Trøndelag was supposed to be started back in March and open this fall. But hasn't even started yet. The project page now says start in 2012. Hopefully an opening as well?

Anyone know how much time the Hardanger Bridge that will open in 2013, will shorten the drive(if any) between Oslo and Bergen?

The bridge is located a few kilometres to the west of the ferry, and the change in the driving distance is negligible.



The time saving comes from the ferry crossing time (10 minutes) plus the waiting time (departure every 40-60 minutes).

And the toll? Has there been any word on how much the toll is going to cost?

What about the road network before and after the bridge? At least the E-16 is a "proper road" with yellow lines down the middle. The rv7 and the 40 look like the roads to use in conjunction with the bridge but if they are those silly little roads that make it hard for a big truck and a car to pass each other, then it might makes sense to still take the E-16, especially if the toll on the bridge will be abnormally high.

I do not know if the toll is agreed yet. The initial estimate in 2004 was NOK 110 for a passenger car. I would expect a price tag of NOK 130-150 at the date of opening. The estimated toll collection period is 15 years. (The toll is already there: The ferry ticket contains a surcharge of NOK 22 as an advance payment.)

There are no big differences between the four primary route options (E16 over Fagernes, E16/52/7 over Gol, E16/13/7 over Hardanger bridge and Gol, E16/13/7/40 over Hardanger bridge and Kongsberg). Currenly, the most popular one is E16/52/7.

The current daily traffic of 900 vehicles over Hardangervidda (the mountain area between the bridge and the village of Geilo) is expected to grow to 1300 vehicles. The "losers" are E16 and E134 (over Haukeli).

Fv40 has yellow markings all the way, but it have sharp turns most of it's length and runs at a high altitude, so Rv7 is more popular for Oslo - Geilo.

Not sure about the final number for tolls on Hardanger bridge, but last number i read was 112 kroner for cars.

There are some other changes in the roadsign-system as well. One of them is this new sign, meaning "traffic accident":


I'm sorry, but the tipped over car really gets me!
Similar signs in Italy:


and Austria

Yes, you're right. I didn't see it before.

This looks very nice, I'm looking forward to the opening on May 15th. Or, they said it was on schedule, but not what date, som I'm assuming it's that date

It's been snowing a wee bit in Oslo... It shouldn't really be that much of an issue - but it inevitably is, even without foreign lorries without proper winter equipment.

http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ir...--6737844.html

In Norwegian, but the main idea is that traffic flow on the E6 southbound was severly hampered by a few lorries. I don't mind foreign truckers at all, but it's really important to be prepared when driving in wintertime in Norway. Not all are, unfortunately. I spent almost two hours driving a distance that even in severe rush hour congestion would take 30-40 mins.

No shit. I'm just back from work. Spent 2 hours on a trip which takes 13 minutes in the summer with no queues. Took me about half an hour just to get through Sinsenkrysset.

I think only the abovementioned E18 section will open in 2012, but I may be mistaken.

Quite sad that there isn't much improvement in Norway's infrastructure. I just don't get it, high taxes, enormous capital (oil) and on top of that, tolls. Should be all that's needed for good roads - even with "difficult terrain". The few motorways in Norway are of good quality though - but you can only drive at 100 km/h.

Is the political opposition in Norway demanding better infrastructure? A change is needed.
