The report describes the traffic during morning and afternoon peak hours in the three major Norwegian cities (Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim). Based on an overview of investment and policy plans for the next 5 to 10 years it is discussed whether congestion and delays may be relieved during that period. Without restrictions users of the road system may experience increased delays. Strong measures such as road pricing during rush hours in combination with increased supply of public transport are necessary. The current economic crisis causes a preliminary relief. Growth in population and employment will be major factors influencing the future volume of traffic.
