Arup has signed a framework agreement with Norway’s public roads administration to provide quality assurance services on two bridges between Stord and Os, part of the country’s E39 Coastal Highway project.
Designed to halve travel time between Bergen and Stavanger to two hours, the Stord-Os highway will improve living and working conditions locally. Building on our relationship with Statens Vegvesen, Arup will provide independent verification and advice on the two fjord crossings.
The harsh weather conditions on Norway’s western coast make local travel unpredictable. With 1,100 kilometres of continuous road, the E39 Superhighway will create an accessible transport route, in what is the country’s largest, most complex infrastructure project to date.
