Drammensveien, Oslo


Drammensveien is a street in Oslo, Norway, and a highway between the cities Oslo and Drammen. The highway is the heaviest trafficked road in Norway. The original road Drammensveien was built for transport from Oslo to the foundry Bærums Verk and the silver mines at Kongsberg. 

Lowry wrote to Nordahl Grieg from the Hotel Parkheimen (Drammensveien 2). In Ultramarine, Dana recalls standing in Drammersveien with Janet Travena; "Under the Aftenpostens Lysavis, standing in the Drammersveien with you." (Pg. 52).
