Norway plans to build the first navigable tunnel in the world
Stadhavet Norwegian Sea is considered one of the most dangerous in this area. Vikings still prefer to do this place a party or pull their boats on land, but would not cross the dangerous waters to swim. Sea Stadhavet storm at least 100 days a year, and a lot of ships and their crews are exposed to great danger. The idea of building the first navigable tunnel in the world, which would allow to avoid falling into this sea, was born in the 70's of last century, but only now reached the level of technology that allows you to do this.
The tunnel was named Stad Ship Tunnel, and it will give the possibility to make safe passage through the sea Stadhavet 70-120 ships daily. To begin to develop the project attracted architectural firm Snohetta, which artists and designers created the original project plan and a few drawings that show how it will look Stad Ship Tunnel.
On the northern entrance to the tunnel will be located near the town of Celje, and the south will be located near the town of Molde. In the southern entrance is spanned bridge from which everyone will be able to see the ships entering or exiting the tunnel.

Norway's parliament has already allocated an amount of one billion Norwegian kroner (about 118 million US dollars) at the beginning of the construction of the facilities, and the total budget for the project, according to expert estimates, will amount to 2, 3 billion Norwegian kroner (about 272 million dollars). But if the authors of the project will shape in terms of grooved, then very soon it will get the bulk of Norway's architectural landmarks. According to the construction manager Terje Andriessen,
"We are developing Stad Ship Tunnel tunnel project will not look like a gross human intervention in nature. It will be the most aesthetic form and integrate harmoniously with the surrounding landscape. We expect that construction will begin in 2019. "
