Skanska to protect Norwegian road from avalanches

14 Jan Skanska has signed a contract worth NOK622m (£57m) to build a tunnel to protect a stretch of Norwegian road from avalanches.

The project for the Norwegian Public Road Authority (NPRA) is in the county of Finnmark and includes the 3.5km-long Skarvberg tunnel on the E69 and an additional 3.8km of new road.

The aim is to secure the highly exposed section of the E69 against avalanches. In addition to the new tunnel, Skanska will build two major avalanche embankments.

Construction starts in April 2019 and the tunnel is due to open by the autumn of 2021.
