Fugro to play key role in Norway’s coastal highway improvement programme
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) has awarded Fugro a contract worth 111 million NOK for environmental measurements in connection with the planned Coastal Highway (Route E39) that will run from the South of Norway (Kristiansand), along the west coast and into central Norway (Trondheim). This is probably the largest contract of its kind to date in Norway.
The NPRA was commissioned by the Norwegian Government to conduct planning and studies into improving the standard of the E39, which currently includes 7 fjord crossings operated by ferries. The fjords vary in depth from 550 metres to 1,300 metres (Sognefjord) and are up to 4 kilometres wide. ….
