Equity & Liveability

Equity discussions for the Oslo toll ring are primarily related to the high number of road users which no not pay. All trips within the toll ring and outside the toll ring avoid the fee. Less than 30% of the trips in the area pay toll. The rest benefit without contributing.

Traffic accident risks are reduced in the period of the toll ring, but to a smaller extent than on national level. However, the county of Oslo has experienced a larger reduction in deaths and severe injuries due to traffic accidents than the national average.

Traffic growth has occurred on major roads, while local roads have experienced unchanged traffic volumes. This is in line with the aims of the investment package. The toll ring itself led only to a small reduction in car travel crossing the toll cordon (3-5 %). The liveability in urban areas has benefited from having the increase in traffic on the main roads rather than on local roads. This was also one of the aims of the investment package.
