Interestingly enough, the Swedish, Danish and quite possibly the Finnish (haven't driven there in more than a decade) network is way better than the Scottish...

How old are you? 11? If you don't have anything interesting to say about Scandinavian roads, I suggest you stick to thumb sucking or whatever. At the very least, leave this thread.

By the way, Norwegian women got the right to vote in 1913. Do you know when British women did..?

They don't seem to be fully access controlled until they are close-ish to major cities... which is good and cost-effective.

There's not really much to connect. The only really obvious "missing link" is the motorway between Oslo and Göteborg. Both cities having around 800k people in the metro area, it should make perfect sense that they're connected by a motorway.

Agree
And 2+1 or 2+2 (when new stretch) would work fine for the (Stockholm-)Karlstad-Olso part imo.

Norway will finish the section between Oslo and Svinesund in 2009. But most of it will be ready next year, only a tunnel close to Oslo will be missing.

Apparently, the final Swedish section will be finished in 2010, so in three years, Oslo is 4-lane connected to the rest of Europe. Nice, I say, although about 20 years late.

Yes, I distinctly remember northern Scotland having no motorways on my map... Interesting, how a region of the developed UK has just about as the same length of motorways as Romania, which endured over 40 years of dictatorship! Not to mention the rampant corruption that followed...

Cool with a thread about Scandinavian highways. There used to be a therad with a lot of info about Danisgh highways, but most of the content was removed (by request of the owners of the materiel, the "Vejdirektoratet").

A few comments:

Here's a link to a map with the current highwats: Map

And finally a few photos from last year, of one of the newest motorways here, the Herning-Vejle motorway (in the middle of Jutland):









And here a photo of the junction between the Herning-Vejle and the Herning-Århus motorways, a few months before it was opened last year:

There are some tollstation around Oslo, but also on non-motorways around Trondheim and Bergen, i thought.

Well, there is no general rule. Whereas Swedish and Danish motorways are free, some Norwegian stretches are tolled. There are also "city tolls" in Oslo and a few other cities, and since it is rather difficult for a tourist to avoid Oslo, the toll booths there function as an extra toll on main roads like the E6 and E18. Driving E6 from the Swedish border and into Oslo will set you back 7-8 Euros.

It is perhaps sightly more surprising to find tolled highways in the rural parts of Norway - some of which are seriously expensive (at least 10-15 Euros). And you're not necessarily paying for an excellent piece of road either, some toll roads are quite ordinary. In addition, much of the highway/motorway improvements currently being constructed/planned, will be tolled.

Finally, one of the least pleasant sides of Norwegian toll roads is that they are truly unavoidable: If you have a quality map and try to go for the decent parallel roads to i.e. the E6 from Svinesund to Oslo, you end up going through toll stations there as well...

^That's where I begin to like EU. Inside EU, a country can't build a tolled road when there isn't a way to avoid it.
