Crossing Norwegian mountains by the E134?


If you have planned to cross Norway from west to east (or the other way around) by the E134, you are quite likely to see the sight shown in the picture - a closed road outside the Haukeli-tunnel. But don't be afraid: it opens once an hour in each direction.

Several of the tunnels along this road are closed for maintenance this summer, either totally or for part of the time. There are diversions, though. You can get updated information by phoning 0047175. They have a service in English.

Are you telling me that when you encounter one of these road blocks, you might have to sit there for an hour waiting for the gate to go up? Come on, you're kidding, right?

No, I'm not. There is a hope, though: It will be all over by Christmas...
