Yepp, we've been discussing it in another thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...444455&page=12

They started implementing it 1/2 year ago.

Once the bridge is done, will it be faster to take the rv7/rv40 to Oslo from Bergen, or will it still be better to take the E16 the whole way or even the E16 to rv7? How much time will the bridge shave off?

I know that they are working on this project on the rv7 which should help travel times as well: http://www.vegvesen.no/Riksveg/Sokna

E16 to Rv7, Fv40 is a slow road. The next sensible project would be the Hardangervidda tunnel to make a whole-year mountaincrossing.

Two winning proposals for 3.7km long crossing of Sognefjorden:

Reinertsen: Floating bridge with a 1km long floating underwater pipe in the middle:


Aas Jacobsen: Floating suspension bridge with 3 span, each 1.2 km:

I think the floating suspension bridge is considered safer in people's perception.

I'm hoping for the part floating bridge and part floating underwater tube wins.

Now that would be something quite extraordinary and something to be proud of.

However, I would put my money on the floating suspension bridge (which in all fairness will be quite a cool bridge anyway).

Guys, could someone provide me with a few official [govt releases or press] on this in English?
I would like to add them to the article on the English Wikipedia.

Convoy driving in bad weather (snow)

Is this common in countries other than Norway?

When the weather is bad (but not so bad that the road has to be closed altogether) you're only allowed over certain mountain passes when following a plow truck in a convoy limited to a certain number of people. For safety reasons, only one convoy is allowed on the restricted section of road at a time. This can lead to hours of waiting time.

Heres' a video from convoy over Hardangervidda:

You may want to start with this:

You might also find this useful:

Both from the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, I'll see what I can dig up from the government's site.

E39

A realigned part of E39 opened to traffic today along the northern side of the Sognefjord. It's near the villages Torvund and Teigen and includes a 2.600 meter tunnel.

2.600meter? You mean 2600 right?

Most of Europe uses the decimal mark to separate thousands. 2.600 is 2600 meters or 2,600 meters in U.S. style.

E6 Sør-Trondelag

A 143 kilometer stretch of E6 will be upgraded south of Trondheim. 66 kilometers from the Oppland border to Ulsberg will be modernized. Another 40 kilometers to Støren will be widened to a 2+1 road with median barrier and the northernmost 37 kilometers to near Trondheim will be widened to 2x2 lanes.

The costs are 10.8 billion NOK or € 1.47 billion at current exchange rates. Part of the cost will be recovered by tolls, as is common throughout Norway.

Construction of the first segments will likely commence in 2014.
