Architectural blog The B1M check out the newly approved Stad Ship Tunnel in Norway that will avoid the dangerous Stadhavet Sea at its narrowest point. The tunnel will hold cruise ships and other large sea ships, the first of its kind. The work starts in 2022 and will take up to four years to make the tunnel.
This crazy project is the answer to a problem that’s existed for more than a thousand years. Quite literally since the time of the Vikings, traversing the Stadhavet Sea has meant a treacherous journey for boats. Bypassing it could be lucrative for the country’s tourism sector, while other industries and trades would benefit from safer passage.
