-The state of the country is not good. RFI CEO Liv Kari Skudal Hansteen said that we are one of the richest countries in the world, but we have reduced the value of the land to this level.
In 2015, the cost was estimated at NOK 2.600 billion. Hansteen said that growth is due to inflation, and climate change means that decline is accelerating.
The report covers public buildings, facilities and infrastructure in twelve areas, with a total value of 700 billion Norwegian kroner.
The worst case is on railways and county roads. According to RIF data, 1.3 trillion Norwegian kroner funds need to be upgraded from two levels to four levels.
Other sectors are airports, national highways, municipal roads, water supply facilities, sewage treatment plants, energy production, energy distribution, municipal buildings, government sanitation buildings and other government buildings.
