Ministry of Transport and Communications
‘The Government wants to ensure that Norway’s transport system is safe, promotes value creation and helps achieve the transition to a low-emission society. The Government conference on 21 April will provide input on how this can be achieved in practice and help ensure that we obtain the best ideas on how this can be solved,’ says Ketil Solvik-Olsen, Minister of Transport and Communications.
The Government aims to have a state-of-the-art transport and communications network which is on a par with comparable countries. Therefore, the government wants to boost infrastructure investments, combined with necessary reforms in the transport sector.
The government’s railway reform: A better transport future for rail commuters and goods transporters
“The role of the railways in the transport system is to be strengthened. An increase in grants and improvements in organisation will transform the railways into a key transport sector in the future. The railway reform will better distribute the various fields of responsibility and thus ensure a more professionally organised system. I am satisfied with the substantial and positive engagement shown by the participants in the railway sector in connection with the work on the reform”.
