Toll charges are used to fund road projects. This helps ensure that Norwegian roads, tunnels and bridges are safe, efficient and well maintained for both Norwegian and visiting motorists.
Tolls are a fair and efficient form of user-financing. There is a direct relationship between use and benefits. Everyone who uses the roads, including visiting motorists, is contributing to the same cause.
In Norway’s largest cities, tolls help fund the development of an efficient, environmentally friendly, safe and accessible transport system. It is an official policy that growth in passenger traffic should be taken up by public transport, cycling and walking. This means that in large conurbations, tolls finance the operation and development of public transport, as well as pedestrian and cycle paths.
