A well-developed road infrastructure is crucial for the Frier Vest industrial area and Frier Vest Port Terminal. Efforts have been made for many years to improve the so-called Gassveien road between the industrial areas on the west side of Frierfjorden and E18 in Bamble. Now, plans and financing for FV 353 between E18 and Sturtebogen have been approved, including by the Norwegian Parliament.
The first section of the road from Rugtvedt/E18 to Findal is expected to be completed by November 1, 2024. The entire road is planned to be finished by May 2025. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2023.
The route of the road is shown in the sketch provided by Vestfold and Telemark County Council.
