MetadataVis full innførsel
Context: Nye Veier AS was established 4th of May 2015. The company is a state-owned enterprise by the government and The Ministry of Transport and Communications. The background for the establishment of the company was to create a new company in addition to Statens vegvesen with the goal to conduct more effective planning, construction, operation and maintenance of vital highways in Norway and connect the country to significant highways abroad. In January 2016, Nye Veier took over responsibility for the development and operation of certain road sections on the E39, E18 and E6. One of these sections was E18 Rugtvedt- Dørdal. Objectives: My thesis aims to investigate how Nye Veier conduct communication to the municipality and other stakeholders in the road-project Rugtvedt-Dørdal. The analysis will investigate if the communication work in Nye Veier can be described with communicative planning theory. Method: This assignment is based on a case study. I have looked at the communication between Nye Veier and the interests of the road-project Rugtvedt-Dørdal. Through analysis of documents and individual qualitative interviews, I have tried to find answers to the problem statement. The data material consists of four interviews and document analysis of public and company-based documents. I have also looked at an article from a hunting and fishing magazine and a request from involved municipalities to the Minister for Transport. I have used the theoretical framework for the implementation of the analysis. Discoveries: In the study, I found that Nye Veier is good at conflict-reducing measures and involvement of stakeholders. Communicative planning theory also requires an authentic dialogue where both parties demonstrate the ability and willingness to gain knowledge. I found some examples of this, but Nye Veier has a potential for improvement. Conclusion: The discoveries show that the planning process in the road-project Rugtvedt- Dørdal can to a certain point be described by the communicative planning theory. All of the conditions for communicative planning are not as well taken care of, and therefore Nye Veier still has something to learn.
