While the property developers at Gardermoen have had major development plans, the development has been delayed by a series of requirements from the Vegvesenet for two intersections should be in place before development could begin.
According to Eidsvoll Ullensaker Blad the Norwegian minister of Transport and Communications Ketil Solvik-Olsen has intervened and given a green light to the municipality of Ullensaker to change the requirement (V23).
"Development in Gardermoen Næringspark is important for regional and national business and value creation. When the park is expanded, it will have between 20,000 and 40,000 jobs,” says Mayor Tom Staahle according to Eidsvoll Ullensaker Blad.
The letter from the Ministry of Transport and Communications says, "It will now be possible for business establishment to be opened on the area that currently has order rules, without the V23 being completed first".
”In practice, this means a solution to the Gordian knot this has been for the municipality and the whole region. We are extremely pleased that the Ministry of Transport is helping to clean up. The crossing problem has been in the way of the desired development on several levels. Both in terms of business development and transport. The urban development at Jessheim is also affected by this,” says Staahle, according to Eidsvoll Ullensaker Blad.
