World’s first ship tunnel closer to construction

The Norwegian ship tunnel project is getting closer to construction. The Norwegian government submitted the National Transport Plan 2018-2029, which proposes the planning of the ship tunnel. About 163 million euro have been earmarked for the first half of the project. The project’s full cost is projected to be about 293 million euro. The tunnel will be 1.7 kilometers long, 50 meters high and 36 meters wide. After several procedures, it will be presented to the Parliament.
