Troms og Finnmark and Nordland counties spent the most per capita on repairing roads last year. The backlog of road maintenance is large throughout the country, the NAF warns.

Viken County Municipality spent the most money on the operation and maintenance of the roads last year, according to the figures from Statistics Norway (SSB), which were presented in March.

The change in gross investment expenditure on municipal roads and streets per capita fell by just over 10% from 2020 to 2021.

Norway’s counties spent a total of NOK 12.7 billion on the operation and maintenance of the county roads in 2021. Nevertheless, there is a huge backlog of maintenance of the county roads, not least because new wear and tear continues to build up year by year, NAF points out. 

The organization believes that more road funds must be used for maintenance and renewal, not least on narrow roads.
