Norway has a long tradition of using toll money to finance road construction. In Oslo and Viken, the toll money is used to finance the expansion of roads and public transport through Oslo package 3.
Most toll points in Norway are automatic, so you drive through without having to stop. With a valid AutoPASS agreement you will get discounts from the toll company you have entered an agreement with and most other toll points in Norway.
The main objective with toll financing is to increase the rate of road infrastructure expansion, but also to strengthen public transport in town areas. There are about 70 different toll projects with 190 toll points throughout the country. About 55 of these projects are currently active, while the rest are either finished or have not been started yet.
