According to NTB’s report, Sweden additionally will construct 100 km three-lane road with median barriers this year, and Norway will only build 17 km.
Former professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Knut Selberg stressed that the issue is complex, but there are still large areas that can be compared with Sweden.
On the other hand, second vice chairman of the transportation committee in Parliament, Bard Hoksrud (FRP), says Transport Minister should immediately go to Sweden to learn about their experiences.
– It’s really amazing, he says about the difference between how much the way Norway and Sweden get for their money.
State Secretary Lars Erik Barnes (Q), said on behalf of Transport Minister Magnhild Meltveit (Q) that the numbers do not reflect the real trend, and it is much more expensive to build roads in Norway than in Sweden.
