Icelandic road system

Jump to: navigation, search

The Icelandic road system is managed by the Vegagerðin. There is a list available that is in public domain with some useful information about a road and its parts (f. i. number, class, name, start point, end point, location, surface).

Due to some chances to save money some of the roads are not longer maintained by Vegagerðin. This is sometimes confusing as the road signs still state a number or a wrong number.

The roads in the list are classified into five groups:

  • S roads (Icelandic: 'Stofnvegur')
  • T roads (Icelandic: 'Tengivegur')
  • L roads (Icelandic: 'Landsvegur')
  • H roads (Icelandic: 'Héraðsvegur')
  • Sx roads (main highland roads)

The roads are numbered:

  • 1-digit: only the main road Hringvegur, also known as number 1
  • 2-digits: mostly S roads
  • 3-digits: mixed road classes, a lot of T and S roads and some H roads
  • 4-digits: almost all roads are of class H
  • F-digit(s): special numbering for mountain roads (Icelandic: 'Fjallvegur') there are F-roads with 2 or 3 digits

Progress lists

This is an overview over the progress on the Icelandic road system maintained by the Vegagerðin. Due to the amount of roads the 3- and 4-digits roads are in separated articles:
