Norway's Coastal Highway $47BN | Eagles TV

A $47 billion proposal to link together Norway’s wild western coastline is the nation’s largest and toughest infrastructure project yet, according to NPR. The project’s new highway would connect Oslo in the southeast to the coastal cities of Bergen, Stavanger, Alesund, and Trondheim, replacing numerous ferries with tunnels and bridges. But because of challenging geography, architects and civil engineers have been forced to develop new and inventive ideas to complete the route.

After decades of building roads all over the country, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) understands the nation’s waterways, full of endless mazes of fjords and lakes, were not designed to be conquered by the automobile. And with its freezing weather and rugged mountain soil, only a select especially acclimated number of people inhabit this area of Scandinavia—a number that decreases yearly.

Most attribute depopulation in these areas to a lack of accessibility. All local road transportation relies on small highways that crisscross the region’s valleys, and the only way to navigate past most waterways is by ferry, which can take upwards of 45 minutes each; in some areas, driving to the neighboring city can require three ferry trips. Mayor Martin Kleppe of Tysnes, a region of rural municipalities located on an archipelago off the coast, told NPR that, “The ferry is a beautiful trip, but it’s more an obstacle than a good connection.” Tysnes’s population has decreased by 50 percent over the last century, a decline the project is meant to counter.

But where there’s a challenge, there’s a solution. The renderings and videoreleased by the NPRA for the project depict some grand ideas—suspension bridges, tunnels, underground junctions—to link all waterways, connect remote island towns, and drastically improve accessibility to the region from the rest of Scandinavia. If completed, the project would contain a number of record-breaking engineering marvels: the suspension bridge at Sognefjord, for example, would have 1,500-foot-high towers and its 12,100-foot-long span would dwarf even the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge and the Millau Viaduct.

But it is not all figured out quite yet. The NPRA’s greatest challenge is at the Sula fjord, the deepest and the widest of them all, and an important shipping route. To cross the 3 miles of water while leaving the 66-foot-high clearance for boats to pass, engineers stand with two likely proposals. The first is a rather awkward three-tower suspension bridge. The two exterior towers would be placed on land, the center tower being anchored to the seafloor. 

The second proposal is the first of its kind in the world: a submerged tunnel tethered not to the seabed below, but above to floating pontoons. While many other underwater tunnels already connect vast waterways—those of Chesapeake Bay, from Copenhagen to Malmö, and Hong Kong to Macau, for instance—one that floats could open new doors in the civil engineering world.

A project of this magnitude is going to not only make a massive mark on Norway’s majestic landscape and make life easier for its residents, but it will also open the area to the rest of the world. This endeavor may put the global spotlight on the far north.

Norway build a floating tunnel!!! | The $47Bn Highway Mega Project | Architechnology

PLEASE LIKE&SUBSCRIBE AND PRESS THE BELL ICON FOR MORE INTERESTING VIDEOS AND DIFFERENT CONTENT.

NORWAY SUBMERGED FLOATING TUNNEL

A combination of Architecture and technology and a incredible wonder of future.

It s the one of the biggest, higly cost and wonderful project of the world in future.

The tunnel, once built for an estimated $25 billion, would see two tubes of around 1,200 meters each submerged 20 meters beneath the Norwegian Sea. In order to give drivers the feeling of being in any other tunnel, the tubes will be attached to the bedrock of each fjord and then attached to pillars floating on top of the sea. Another design option would see a bridge built on top of the tunnel for stability.
The idea picked up speed when Norway’s public roads body approved the building of these tunnels along E39, the highway along its western coastline that has the most ferries for a single road in Europe.
The tunnel is far off from completion, set to be inaugurated in 2035. However, early testing is proving the project’s potential. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s (NTNU) Centre for Advanced Structural Analysis has been stress-testing concrete to be used on the tunnel and has found that it could resist far more pressure than previously thought, up to an explosion inside the tunnel with walls 80-100 cm thick.
Furthermore, this new science rests on existing technologies. Offshore drilling platforms have become increasingly sophisticated at being anchored to the seabed, allowing them to resist gale-strength winds and huge waves. Floating bridges, such as the 2.3-kilometer example in Lake Washington, offer the technology that could see the tunnel accompanied by its own bridge.
“This idea of Norway’s is sort of an intermediate technology of things that have been done before,” says Henry Petroski, a Duke University civil engineer who specializes in bridges.
There are also concerns about this project. While it might increase commuter ease and reduce journey times, these underwater tunnels could wreak havoc with shipping and military operations. The government has already acknowledged the tunnels could pose a problem for Norway’s submarine fleet.

I HOPE YOU LIKE IT.
THANKS FOR WATCHING.

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration plans to build floating tunnels as part of a coastal highway that would run between Kristiansand and Trondheim, according to the agency's website.


It currently takes 21 hours and 7 ferry crossing to travel between these two cities, according to NPR.


The new Coastal Highway Route would include bridges as well as submerged floating tunnels that would connect different fjords, CNN reports. It is expected to cut travel time by half.


The floating tunnels would be installed around 30 meters under the water, according to CNN.


The tunnels would be anchored to the seabed or to pontoons which would float on the surface of the water, CNN reports. This will help in stabilizing the structure. It will then function as an ordinary tunnel, allowing vehicles to drive from one end to the other.


If Norway succeeds, this could be the world's first underwater floating tunnel.

Norway is Building An Underwater Tunnel Under The Atlantic to Help Relieve Traffic

The Norwegian Ministry of Transport is currently developing a sub-sea road tunnel, which will be the deepest and longest of any tunnel of this kind in the world after it’s finished. The far-reaching project will eventually connect Bergen and Stavanger, and offer easier and more practical solutions for travelling between the various fjords in the region in which it is being built. Best of all, the plan for the tunnel involves a construction plan that will prevent the tunnel’s potential interference with ship traffic.

The infrastructure plans will cost Norway no less than $47 billion and would spawn amazing solutions for crossing the fjords. Take, for example, the $2bn Boknafjorden tunnel, a 27-kilometre-long subsea tunnel build 390 meters below the sea level. It will be the longest, deepest tunnel in the world. This coastal highway expansion will set the bar in terms of engineering capabilities
and will pave the way for future infrastructure megaproject

The existing e39 highway stretches 1100km 683miles along Norway's coast. It includes 7 ferry crossings with a total journey time of 21 hours.
With the goal of increasing accessibility, and transport efficiency
Norway's government is embarking on one of Europe's largest megaprojects.
The new project seeks to eliminate ferries by building a series of bridges and tunnels.
At 26.7km, and 390m deep the Rogfast tunnel will be the world's longest and deepest road tunnel and will slash the driving time by 40 minutes. It is planned to open in 2026, with tolls to be put in place for the first 20 years.
of operation.
Construction on this tunnel began in 2018 and should be complete by 2026 costing $2 billion.

A little bit further, the Sulafjorden bridge will cover a 4-kilometre-wide stretch of water. Its middle pillar would connect to the seabed at a 400-meter negative elevation!

But the most challenging crossing is that over the Sognefjord. 3,700 meters in width, and 1,300 meters depth — it’s the biggest fjord in Norway. There are several solutions that will have to cater to the needs of car traffic and sea traffic, while also keeping an affordable budget - floating submerged tunnels (connected to each
other and held up by floating pontoons on the water's surface),
the world's largest suspension bridge with towers 435m tall.
A floating bridge is also under consideration.
Another solution is a hybrid floating bridge and tunnel. It would be the world's first construction of the sort.
Another proposition is an enormous cable-stayed bridge connected to the seafloor with 4 pillars.
