Rendering of proposed ship tunnel in Norway

If Norway's Stad Ship Tunnel gets approved, it would be located on the Stadhavet Sea, an area known for heavy winds and hurricanes. Stormy weather makes it almost impossible for ships to travel in the area. Vessels often wait for hours or even days before it becomes safe enough to cross. A study has been performed by the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA), and their findings are scheduled to be released this May. If approved by the Norway Department of Transport, construction could begin as early as 2019. [Source: View more info at Business Insider via AGC SmartBrief.
