In January 2019, our team started the D15 Lovstakkentunnelen project in Bergen, Norway. The 90 million project includes the construction of two tunnels and two caverns as underground tram depots. The project will continue until February 2022.
The two 2’900 m long tunnels and the two caverns with a cross-section of 130 m2 will be excavated by drill and blast method. In total, the tunnel builders will remove approx. 500,000 m3 of excavated material.
The new tunnel connects the towns of Fyllingsdalen and Kristianborg. One tube serves as a tram connection and the second tube, the safety tunnel, serves as a footpath and cycle path. The two caverns will be used as underground tram depots. With its 2’900 m the tunnel will be the longest bike/pedestrian tunnel of Europe and the second longest of the world.
