Welcome to Via Nordica 2016!
It is my great pleasure to invite you, on behalf of the Nordic Road Association (NVF), to attend the 22nd
Nordic Road Congress, Via Nordica 2016, to be held in Trondheim, Norway, on 8-10 June.
The Via Nordica congress is arranged by the NVF every four years.
How can we achieve reliable and sustainable forms of transport with less energy use and increased transport efficiency?
The slogan for the Via Nordica 2016 congress is “Our climate – your environment“. We will focus on transport as
a challenge, globally due to the transport sector‘s CO2-emissions and locally as a cause of reduced air quality,
noise and traffic accidents.
Experience from large road projects already finished will be presented as well as solutions to planned projects where
new technologies will be applied.
Via Nordica 2016 will take place at the Clarion Hotel & Congress close to the city centre in Trondheim. The congress is
open to experts beyond the Nordic countries, who would like to share our experience and bring an international element
to this Nordic Congress.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Trondheim
Terje Moe Gustavsen, Chair of the NVF 2012-2016
Director General of the Norwegian Public Roads Administration
