Nord-Jæren region is located on the western coast of Norway. Stavanger is the regional capital for about 250’000 inhabitants, including adjacent municipalities. The city of Stavanger is Norway's fourth largest city by population with 119’000 inhabitants.
The Nord-Jæren toll ring started its operation in April 2001, a decade after the other main toll rings in Norway. However, local discussions of a toll ring had been going on since mid 80s, but never gained the necessary political support. The Nord-Jæren package was established despite the lack of political support from two of the municipalities in the region. The other three municipalities, including the city of Stavanger, and the county council supported the package.The plans for the toll ring passed Parliament. The toll period was set at 10 years, with an option to increase the period to 15 years if necessary.
