Norway to build world's first ship tunnel at a cost US$319m

  20.03.2017    

After deliberating for a century, Norway has given the green light to build the world's first ship tunnel stretching from the Norwegian Sea to the North Sea along Norway's west coast, according to Shipping Gazette.
The 1.7-km tunnel will cost an estimated US$319 million and will take a decade to construct. It will allow for year-round safe passage of freight and tourist ships between Bergen and Alesund. Currently, ships must sail around the Stad peninsula, a route known for its treacherous seas, as American Shipper reported quoting a Splash 24/7 story.
The tunnel, which will be built under a 645-metre mountain, will be 45 metres high and 36 metres wide in order to accommodate ships with a draft of 12 metres.
