Norway wants to build world’s first tunnel for ships | News.com.au

NORWAY’S government has announced plans for what is being labelled the world’s first tunnel for large ships, aimed at helping them navigate a treacherous section of the southwestern coast.

Unveiling a 10-year transportation plan, the government said it would earmark one billion kroner ($166 million) for the construction of the Stad maritime tunnel, named for the peninsula notorious for high winds and heavy seas.

The 1.7-kilometre passageway will be carved into a piece of the peninsula’s mountainside, linking two fjords, hallmarks of the Norwegian coastline.
