NCC chosen for 9km Norwegian tunnel

16 Oct 14 NCC has won the construction contract for a 9.4km tunnel along Norway’s E134 highway between Gvammen and Arhus in Telemark.

The construction period will be four and a half years and the contract is worth SEK1,140m (£99m).

“We are delighted to have been selected by the Norwegian Road Administration,” said Håkon Tjomsland, business area manager for NCC Construction Norway.

Building the new tunnel will shorten the journey along the E134 by about 11km. The contract also includes construction of 1.1km of roads on either side of the mountain, 5km of local roads and two crossings.

Work on the project will begin this year and is scheduled for completion in 2019.
