Norway eyeing a tunnel for ships

NewImageThis is pretty badass, the Norwegians are planning to create a tunnel for ships:

“Now Norwegian seafaring prowess and tunnel-building expertise are expected to merge as the government plans to build what may be the world’s first ship tunnel, a passage large enough to enable cargo ships and commuter vessels to avoid the notoriously treacherous waters around the Stadlandet peninsula, which is north of Bergen slightly southwest of Ålesund, and experience safer, faster trips.”
