Skanska’s Western Corridor development aims to build a comprehensive main motorway system between Lysaker in Bærum and Drengsrud in the municipality of Asker.

The current section of E18 is known for its traffic congestion, inadequate public transportation access, and significant noise and air pollution issues.

Throughout the process, the project will adhere to all required environmental standards and seek BREEAM Infrastructure certification at the level of ‘Excellent’.

Works are scheduled to commence in a few months’ time, with construction expected to be complete by early 2030.
