The Norwegian government has backed a plan to create the world's first ship tunnel. But why has nobody built one before?
The thought of a 16,000 tonne ship going through a tunnel blasted out of the rock is quite mind-boggling. The Norwegians have done some advanced things with tunnels to link the country so why not a ship tunnel. The design has obviously taken into account the current and likely future size of the Hurtigruten ships operating the daily Norwegian coastal express which takes 11 days to go from Bergen to Kirkenes and back. Presumably these would be the tunnel's main large ship users -- two Hurtigruten ships per day going through it; one north and the other south.
