Norwegian Engineers to Build World’s First Floating Underwater Tunnels

world’s first floating underwater traffic tunnels

Norwegian Engineers want to build an underwater, tube-shaped tunnel that floats in one of their fjords. The tunnel would cut a 21 hour trip between 2 cities down to 11 hours. Norway has brought forth aspiring arrangements to introduce the world’s first gliding submerged passages to help explorers effortlessly cross the country’s numerous fjords.

At present, the only way to travel across the bodies of water involves taking a series of ferries – an inconvenient and time-consuming process. The “submerged floating bridges” would consist of large tubes suspended under 100 feet of water, and each one will be wide enough for two lanes of traffic.

A final decision on the project will be announced by the end of this year–stay tuned!
