Ironically this 4-line highway is constructed for the elites living in Oslo, who want to drive in 100 Km/h to their "cabins" up in the mountains to enjoy "unspoiled" nature.|
Although "unspoiled". Norway's first national park, Rondane, is now threatened because of too much tourism and the negative influence of all the traffic and the "cabin"-palaces surrounding the park.
Especially the situation for the wild reindeers is critical.
