The information in this chapter is reproduced from Meland et al (2004). The Trondheim Package amounts to approximately NOK 2,100 mill for the period 1989-2005 (NOK 100 is about 12.5€) (Table below). The package is financed with a combination of revenues raised from the Trondheim toll ring, and governmental funding.
According to the original plans for the Trondheim package, national funding (governmental) was to amount to 40% of the funding of the Trondheim Package, and the local funding (toll revenues) had to raise the last 60% over the total 15-year concession period. Loans were taken up in advance of the toll charging, to allow road construction to start before the toll ring was established. The loans amounted to approximately NOK 440 million (55€), and are covered by toll revenues.
Over the years, the ratio between national and local funding has shifted towards a larger proportion of national funding (see table above), and, by the end of the concession period, the ratio was probably close to 50/50, as additional national grants (“Storbymidler”) are included in the financing of the Trondheim package.
All revenues from the toll system are earmarked for transport investment: 82% are used for funding the road construction program in the Trondheim Package; 18% are used for investment in public transport and in several safety and environmental measures. Details of the total investments are given in the following table.
