The new billions invested in roads, over the past four years, have been able to increase local employment by 7446 regular jobs. This is shown in a report from the Fremskrittspartiet(Frp), which was organized as a socio-economic analysis. During this period we wanted to show the impact of employment of all types of transport and road construction. "The results are better than I could have imagined," Frans financial representative Hans Andreas Limi told the NTB news agency. The report shows that between 2013 and 2017, expenses for operations, services and investments increased by 19, 25 and 52%. The overall effect is estimated to have increased employment from 34,900 full-time jobs to 42,713 in the past 4 years. Of the total number of new jobs, just over 7900 were created 1,700, while 6,200 established posts are associated with maintenance.
The calculations are based on five sectors with indirect effects of employment.Researchers in the report do not consider to what extent the increase in activity in the transport sector diverts from other values of value and employment. If the growth potential in the society has almost reached a peak, it is obvious that this can happen. "But the transport efforts occurred during a period of sharp decline in revenues from oil and gas," Limi said. If the growth of employment in the transport sector has a strong character, then this is another matter. Limi suggests that this relates to a new national transport plan of $ 1,000 billion. When the project is completed, new projects will follow it. He says that the need for maintenance will be constant.
