Architects / Engineers: The “Coastal Highway Route 39” Mega-project in Norway creates bridges and tunnels with innovative technological solutions

The route runs from Kristiansand in the south to Trondheim in the north, and is approximately 1100 km long. The route runs through six counties, and the cities of Stavanger, Bergen, Ålesund and Molde. Travel time today is around 21 hours, and road users need to use seven different ferry connections. The aim is to create an improved E39 without ferries, which will reduce travel time by half. The route will be almost 50 kilometres shorter.

I just read in The Guardian this curious architectural project in China and it seems to come from the future
