So E16 will be moved from Hønefoss - Sandvika. I wonder what number that route will get.

E16 between Höneforss and Sandvika will still be numbered E16...

It should be route 7. I don't get the spur-idea, especially when it's as long as it will become. A route should be from A to B, not from A to B and perhaps also C. E 16 never went to Oslo, but Sandvika, so... I really don't get it. They got rid of the dual E 6 in Trondheim, so why this? :/

Kongsvinger is currently signed trough Fv178 Jessheim from Gardermoen, even when these signs disappear traffic will follow this shorter toll-free route.

Norway wanted to still have an European road between the two biggest cities, and for some reason they did not want to renumber the spur to E160 or something else.

But let us agree the route of the E16 to be Bergen- Hønefoss- Sandvika- Hønefoss- Gardermoen- Kongsvinger- Sweden. If are in a hurry, you can take a shortcut from Hønefoss to Hønefoss.

E16 will not be the most important route between Bergen and Oslo anyway, with the completion of the Hardanger Bridge and a cutoff of Rv7 northwest of Hønefoss. It will be about 50 - 55 kilometers shorter to utilize Rv7.

A true Pandora's box you're opening here... For decades, we have been discussing which should be the main road connection between Oslo and Bergen, and as a consequence, all the candidates are rather substandard. Rv 7 is, as you mention, the shortest alternative today, but the road down to Hardangerfjorden is steep. In addition, it runs through the Hardangervidda national part and road improvements there won't happen. In addition, it's by far the most exposed crossing in winter at more than 1200 metres above sea.

E16, the alternative currently favoured by our politicians, is the longest, but it's almost never closed in winter and - because of the political support - is being improved both sides of the mountain. Still, the fact that it is considerably longer remains a big problem. The rv 7 - rv 52 - E16 link is quite popular as well. Not as safe in winter as Filefjell and E16, but far better than rv 7. It's slightly longer than rv 7, but much shorter than E16. Finally, the E134 link across Haukeli and into Hardanger along rv 13 has been proposed, since it would be the shortest of the lot. It requires massive investments, though, including a second Hardangerfjord crossing. A new Haukeli-Røldal road is being planned and will be built, so it's possibly not completely unrealistic.

Right! Though I guess there will be talks about this. I'm clearly against this, mostly because having two E 16s makes a ridiculously small amount of sense.

In addition, the Rv7 Granvin-Trengereid is really a lousy stretch: Narrow, windy and slow. The alternative route over Rv13 and E16 via Voss is about the same length but much better one, especially after opening Tunsbergtunnelen replacing the steep hairpin road at Skjervet.

Hi guys, I'm a bit new here, I'm from India and I have a small doubt.
Who is the implementing authority/government agency for the Hardanger Bridge, and who is building it?
Also, is it going to be tolled?

Thank you!
Is it tolled? I can't find any information in any news article.

Yes, there will be tolls. About 126,70 NOK per passing, according to this source: http://www.vegvesen.no/_attachment/66274/binary/25993 (not sure if higher for trucks etc.)
That's about $20 US.

That's fairly high for a relatively small bridge if you ask me. About 60 NOK for a passenger car would sound more reasonable.

That sum is the average toll per a vehicle. The sum is based on the price level of 2006, and thus it will be adjusted upwards. The toll itself will be less for passenger cars and more for the heavy traffic. I believe the price list is not yet agreed.
