Closed roads 16 September

Arranged this year SATURDAY 16 September

This will unfortunately to a greater or lesser extent have consequences for the residents in the area around the trail. See trail map here.

Parking restrictions will take effect at 00:00 on Saturday 16 September. The trail will be closed gradually from 05:00, with a total closure at 07:45.

All driving on the trail is forbidden! Thus, all roads and parking spaces that open into the trail will be blocked. The ban on driving also applies to residents with driveways or garages that open into the trail.

The route closes at 07:45 and will be closed until kl. 20:00. Recommends that anyone planning to drive do so before 5pm on Saturday.

Parking restrictions will also be introduced in the area. The entire trail will be signposted with "stop prohibited" and all cars parked here will be towed away. We kindly ask residents to follow the signs in their immediate area. This will be set out in advance according to applicable rules, well in advance of the race. Residents who are locked inside and may need to drive while the race is in progress are advised to park the car off the track in advance.

Buses and trams will also be affected to a greater or lesser degree. See for more information.

It will not be possible to cross the trail at any points in the route by car.

As a pedestrian, there will be several places where the trail can be crossed. This year we will set up three transition bridges where the public can cross the trail.

  • Egertorget
  • Rådhusgata
  • Vestbanen / Aker Brygge / Nesoddbåtene

We recommend that everyone who does not absolutely have to drive into the city center on Saturday 16 September leave the car and use public transport or walking / cycling. Both Ring 1 and Ring 3 will not be affected by the track routes to the BMW Oslo Marathon, so here the traffic will go as normal.

We have also set up a separate information telephone where residents, the public, businesses etc can call in and get further information. For questions regarding reduced accessibility, we want you to contact us, and not the emergency services or the Police. Call telephone number + 47 45 91 43 30 and we will try to answer as best we can if there is something you are wondering about!

Note that music will be played in some places on the trail. We welcome everyone to attend the folk festival!
