Work progresses well on Sandoy subsea-tunnel

80 meters of Sandoyartunnilin– the subsea-tunnel which will connect the island of Streymoy to the island of Sandoy – were bored last week

According to P/F Eystur- og Sandoyartunlar, 45 meters were bored from Traðadalur (Sandoy) while 35 meters were bored from Gomlurætt (Steymoy).

Overall, 1.142 meters out of 10.785 meters have now been bored – 818 meters from Sandoy, and 324 meters from Streymoy.

Work on the undersea tunnel started earlier this year, and the tunnel is expected to open to drivers in 2023.

The Sandoy subsea-tunnel will be the fourth of its kind in the Faroe Islands after Vágatunnilin (2002), Norðoyatunnilin (2006) and Eysturoyartunnilin, which will open to the public in 2020.
