The project's objective

The work was a part of a large project of the Norwegian road administration (Statens vegvesen), to upgrade and mend state roads north of Trondheim. The work resulted in better roads, allowing better and faster traffic flow and increased traffic safety.

The aim of the project was to design new walking and cycling route along an existing state road, Fv.710, as well as mending the road itself to increase the road safety and upgrade it to meet current standards. In total, 5 km of roads were missing walking and cycling paths and/or the road did not meet current standards, and the project remedied this.
