E39 soon ready for development

The first part of the main road E39 will soon be ready for development

All the municipalities involved have said yes and the development of the new E39 between Kristiansand and Sandnes can therefore start as planned.

It is the conclusion of Nye Veier AS after Søgne municipality on Thursday evening said yes. From before, the other affected municipalities, Kristiansand, Songdalen and Mandal have given their consent - informs norwaytoday.

– A significant milestone for the project, says Development Manager Harald J. Solvik in a comment.

It is the first stretch between Kristiansand west and Mandal East which will be started. The stretch is 19 kilometers and becomes a four-lane highway with a speed limit of 110 kilometers per hour. The development can not begin before May next year, and will at the earliest be finished in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Finished in 2027

However, some small things remain, like purchasing buildings that have to be removed and to complete drilling to verify the state of the ground.

The entire upgraded stretch between Kristiansand and Sandnes is expected to be completed in 2027.
