Representatives of the Norwegian road authority Nye Veier and a joint venture of Besix and Rizzani de Eccher signed the contract yesterday (7 September 2020) for the design, permits and further development of the E6 Moelv-Roterud infrastructure project.

The project includes a main bridge over Lake Mjøsa spanning more than one kilometre and an 11-kilometre section of four-lane motorway.
