Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
The 5.5 km section runs between Daglset in the municipality of Røyken and Linnes in the municipality of Lier
The plan is for a new four-lane road on the section between Dagslett in Røyken municipality and Linnes in Lier municipality in the southwest of Norway. The road is to replace the present section which is built to a poor standard and is an environmental issue for the people living along it.
The existing road does not meet the present requirements for width, curvature, exits, crossings and speed limits. Today’s local and through traffic creates major environmental and road safety problems for local residents.
The project has a high profile, with State funding under the National Transport Plan (NTP) 2014–23, and is part of a priority traffic route between Vestfold and Østfold. The construction is to be financed through tolls and State funding. The total cost is estimated at NOK 2.1 billion at 2014 prices.
Planning of the project will continue through 2015 and 2016. It is planned to start preparatory work in 2016, before construction gets under way for real in 2017. The new road should then be finished by 2021.
