Excavation work has begun in Norway on the Solbakk tunnel

Today, a ferry sails from Stavanger in South West Norway to Strand across the fjord. From mid-2018, the link will be provided by the 14 km long Solbakk road tunnel. The contract awarded to Marti includes the construction of access roads and reclamation of land from the sea, together with the excavation and construction of two parallel two-lane tunnels with a length of 8 km. The tunnels are being driven forward by dynamiting and have reached 200 m. The material left behind by the explosions is being removed by a system of conveyors.
