A new plan for Norway intends to see the country’s roads becoming carbon neutral in a bid to address climate change. The aim is to make the road sector fully sustainable, with a major focus on spending for road research.

The plan is being drawn up jointly by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens Vegvesen) and the Centre for Green Shift in the Construction Environment (Green 2050). The partners will work with the Norwegian university NTNU. The collaboration will be used to develop the necessary knowledge base for the programme to move ahead. There will be more research into sustainable road and transport moves.

Green road construction technology will be highlighted along with green transportation systems.
