The project includes the planning of the new highway 19 between the E6 and the Moss ferry quay.

The aim of the new national road is to improve access for national road traffic in Moss between the ferry terminal and the E6. Commercial traffic and public transport will have better accessibility and predictable journey times, and traffic in and through the city will no longer be an obstacle to the development of a good urban environment.

In April 2021, the Ministry of Transport asked the Norwegian Public Roads Administration to study three corridors (Kleberget–Årvoll, current ferry hire – Årvoll, current ferry hire – Mosseporten/Patterød) plus a simpler 0+ alternative for a new national road 19. Cost frame NOK 4 billion.

In June 2021, the NTP for 2022–2033 was adopted by the Storting, here the framework for the new road is NOK 5 billion.

In June 2022, Moss municipality adopted the planning program for the municipal sub-plan which is now being prepared.

The plan was to submit a proposal for a corridor in late autumn 2023, now this will not be ready until autumn 2025 at the earliest.

The Swedish Road Administration is also looking at a 5+ alternative, Kransen-Thorbjørnsrød.

On 22 March 2024, the government announced its priorities for NTP 2025-2036. National highway 19 is not in a fixed location, it is only in the development portfolio. But it can come in: the NTP is to be adopted by the Storting in June.

If it gets to the point where a municipal sub-plan is adopted, the next step is a zoning plan.

Until January 2023, it had been expected that the construction work could at best start in 2028.

Now the time estimate is completely out of the blue. Construction work will normally take three to five years.
