‘World’s Longest’ Purpose-Built Cycling Tunnel Opens in Norway

The new three-kilometer-long cycling and pedestrian tunnel named Fyllingsdalstunnelen has been opened in Bergen, Norway. It has been blasted through the base of Løvstakken mountain and its makers claim that it's the longest purpose-built tunnel of its kind. The tunnel was opened on April 15, following four years of construction, which began in February 2019, at a cost of $29 million or 300 million Norwegian kroner. According to Camilla Einarsen Heggernes, a spokesperson for rail company Bybanen Utbygging, the tunnel is "100% state of the art." Bergen, located on Norway’s fjord-studded west coast, is a UNESCO World Heritage city surrounded by seven mountains.
