[N] Norway | road infrastructure • Veier i Norge

Hello. I dont have a driver license, but I know that Norway is one of the richest countries out there, and still Norway got less than 150km with highways.

Think of it. Driving from Oslo to Bergen takes about 10 hours! Thats 98% 2 lane road with yellow stripes in the middle for the most and at some sections its even smaller with white stripes at the edges of asphalt.

Lets take route from Oslo to Bergen:
Oslo
¦
¦ Highway class A
¦
Sandvika
¦
¦ 2 lane road, where 0.2% of it is classified as Highway B
¦
Voss
¦
¦ Highway from border of town to center of Bergen ;p
¦
Bergen


Does anyone have maps of Norways highways maybe?

Is the speed limit on motorways still 90km/h? That would be the lowest max.speed i've ever seen.

And thanks for the invitation, but we have an excellent dike and dune system. They even came from New Orleans to check out our Delta-projects
But Norway is a nice country, but quite expensive i heard. But the scenery compares that easily

^ The speed limit is now 100 km/h.

I really don't understand why they have so few motorways, Finland for example has much more.

Well, the terrain is extremely mountainous, compared to flat Finland. maybe there is no need for them, because of low amounts of traffic. There are only a few million people in this country.

i think there is more then 150 km of motorway, but not too much. on the map that i own motorway system looks like on this picture. the thing that i hate in nordic countries (den, swe, nor) is that they don't have motorway numbers. fin has, but they are the same as state roads.

That map is all wrong. Between Oslo and Lillehammer,.. the 4 lane highway is only upto Gardermoen airport, then further north its 2 lane highway and thats not real highway.

There are only 2 places in whole Norway where you can drive in 100km/h.

AmiDelf you are wrong.. There are quite many places you can drive in 100 km/h in Norway.

E6 from Vinterbro to Solli, E6 from Oslo to Jessheim, E18 from Asker to Drammen, E18 from Drammen to Kopstad and also the highway connecting E6 and Oslo Airport have all speed limits of 100 km/h.

And the term "highway" is wronly used here. Highway means "riksveg". You guys are talking about Motorways/Expressways.

Not that slow if u take in mind that 120km/h is the speed limit on like 80% of Europe's highways, except Germany where they use no speed limits for highways.

As for norways highways, i really had no idea that they actually have so little of them.

Sadly enough, you'll see 100km/h on a growing amount of motorways in The Netherlands, outside urban areas.

It is such a slow speed! But in Norways case, it's okay, so you can enjoy the scenery

^the traffic is usually going in 110-120 though

We have so bad motorways because all the money has been spent by stupid politicians wanting to build bridges and tunnels in the small places they come from(usually western or northern Norway)

Well in Greece the speed limit on highways is 120(140 in some cases) but the traffic(Cars) is moving a lot higher(140-180).Thats a reason for us having a lot of deaths in our roads though.

Really? I would have thought that a country like Norway would know its priorities.

It's been bettet the last 10-15 years. Infrastructure-projects around Oslo have higher priority now(although most of them are financed by toll-roads). We've got a new motorway through much of Vestfold and Østfold (southwest and southeast of Oslo), and more is under construction. A 40 km motorway between Kristiansand and Grimstad in the south is also under construction.

But the problem is that we are lagging behind, these motorways currently under construction would have been finished 30 years ago had the same area been in Sweden or Denmark.

You may also drive at 140 km/h in Greece? Where would that be?

Yes, but they usually don't bother with people driving 10-20km/h faster than the limit on the high standard motorways, only on the roads of poorer standards, where there are more accidents.

I am sure, I've driven on the roads out of Oslo many times

IN pathe(παθε) motorway, there is a part of the road that speed limit is 140km/h its the part near thessaloniki which is 3 lanes each side.
I dont know if there is anywhere else though.The rule is 120km/h except if u see a sign that indicates a higher speed,can be lower also ofc .
