The Norwegian OSM community (mailing list kart at nuug.no) is about to start
an import of all Norwegian roads. The import is detailed here:

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/Catalogue/Road_import_%28Norway%29

This import has been in planning for quite some time. Note that due to the
extensive existing OSM road data in Norway, this is a purely manual import
(as detailed on the Wiki page). Existing roads will have their geometry and
tags updated to match the dataset, and new roads are only copied/pasted
manually on a road-by-road if there is some other confirmation that the
roads actually exist (local knowledge, aerial imagery, etc.). We thus
expect this will take quite some time and are eager to get started. Let me
know if you need anything else. :)

Thanks,
