(Video) The Eysturoy sub-sea tunnel

The Eysturoy tunnel connects Skálafjørður and Tórshavn together with a subsea tunnel, which will be a full 11 kilometres long. The drilling work began in February 2017 and the tunnel will be completed in 2020.

The tunnel will shorten the travel distance from Tórshavn to Runavík/Strendur from 55 kilometres to 17 kilometres. The 64 minute drive will be shortened to 16 minutes. The drive from Tórshavn to Klaksvík will be shortened from 68 minutes to 36 minutes.
