Norway to build world’s first TUNNEL for ships

 

NORWAY plans to build the world’s first ever shipping tunnel in a huge £2.3billion project.

 

Plans for the Stad Ship Tunnel have been revealed allowing ships to avoid one of the most dangerous coastlines in Scandinavia.

 

Commercial ships will no longer have to navigate the dangerous fjords but instead will use the mile long tunnel.

 

The tunnel, which will cross the Stad Peninsula at its narrowest point, will be nearly 150ft tall and 118ft wide.
