Floating Underwater Traffic Tunnels: Norway

Norway to Build World’s First Floating Underwater Traffic Tunnels

Julie M. Rodriguez | July 25, 2016

Norway has hatched ambitious plans to install the world’s first floating underwater tunnels to help travelers easily cross the nation’s many 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.
