The first Fosen Bridge Conference was held at Ørland Kultursenter, Brekstad on Tuesday September 22, 2020

The idea is that similar conferences will be held at certain intervals to update interested parties about status and news from their own or national work with significance for the projects.

There was a good participation with around 90 participants, and the premises at the center worked well in relation to the infection control rules (Covid 19) that apply to such events.

Below is the program for the conference and all the presentations.

We thank our sponsors and partners at Fosen.

Linda Hofstad Helleland (Distrikts- og digitaliseringsminister):

Vi er nødt til å satse på samfersel! Infrastruktur er viktig for å skape funksjonelle regioner

-Prosjektet med Fosenbrua har kommet for fullt og med gode ambassadører. Det er ingen tvil om at Fosenbrua er et viktig prosjekt!

.. Jeg liker godt måten det er jobbet på med å fremheve å knytte bo- og arbeidsmarkeder sammen, at det er viktig for pendlere og for næringslivet. Det er få virkemidler som er like avgjørende som samferdselspolitikken! Dette fører til at vi kan ta i bruk de ressursene som vi er så priviligert å ha i Norge og omsette til arbeidsplasser. Det handler om bosetting, ressursutnyttelse og næringsutvikling!

Gode bru- og veiforbindelser er nødvendig for at folk skal komme seg til og fra jobb og for at næringslivet skal få stabil og rask tilgang til markedene. Opplevelsen av en større region med større og bedre tilbud når det gjelder arbeidsplasser, men også når det gjelder tjenestetilbud og kultur, er avgjørende for å være en attraktiv region som folk har lyst til å flytte til. Det bidar til å samle og utnytte regionen gjennom å gi den tyngde og rekkevidde ..

Fosenbru Conference 2020

We have envisaged that we will now arrange Fosenbru conferences, either every two years, depending on how much new material it will be. The first of its kind was scheduled for June 3 or 4, 2020 at the Ørland Cultural Center in Brekstad. It is now clear that it must be postponed until such events can be held.

We have so far been in a phase of basic investigations, while we are now into a new phases in which we are preparing projects. We want people at Fosen and others to be able to keep up with this work, as well as the more general developments in areas that are important to the projects.

It will be a one-day conference, and the program that was prepared consisted of, among other things:

The forecast calculations Fosen 2060
Population, jobs and traffic ahead by the year 2060
Michelle Delapaz / Linda Alfheim, Norconsult Oslo

Stjørnfjord crossing
Status of planning work for crossing the fjord, the Stadsbygd tunnel, and new or improved road Fevåg-Rissa

A production line at Sunnmøre is supported by both the Ferry-free E39 project In the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and Innovation Norway. The first delivery will be a pedestrian and bicycle road bridge “untouched by human hands” in Åfjord municipality during the fall of 2020.

Otherwise, we plan input from various stakeholders, with subsequent debate and input from the auditorium. We will return to this when a new date is clarified.

Investigation program for business

Soon we will invite business and industry to collaborate on an investigation program for business and industry at Fosen. We envision that subcommittees will look at aquaculture, agriculture, real estate, industry, trade and service, and the business community otherwise.

The themes will be how new infrastructure can affect recruitment and access to labor, productivity, value creation, growth, and Fosens and Trøndelag’s attractiveness as a working region.

The Fosenbru projects in the short and long term

We are now seeing the end of a few years with several basic investigations, and as mentioned above, we are now entering new phases where we are preparing projects. A significant part of this will be planning and impact analysis in accordance with the Planning and Building Act for connections and crossing the Stjørnfjord.

Other topics will include environmental data for waves, wind and electricity, design basis for the cruise, financing analysis, contracting and implementation strategies, etc.
We will come back on this one.
