Norwegian County Road 830

Geography

County Road 830 is a 35.64-kilometer (22.15 mi) road in the municipalities of Sulitjelma and Fauske in Nordland County, Norway. It runs between Finneid, where it branches off from European route E6, and Sulitjelma, where it continues as County Road 543. The road was laid out along the bed of the former Sulitjelma Line, which was shut down in 1972. Work on converting the rail route for road traffic began on July 2, 1971. Over the course of three weeks, starting on July 24, 1972, the tracks were demolished and the road was made drivable. Further work on the road was carried out until 1975.
