Business Insider recently reported that the drive from Kristiansand to Trondheim in Norway takes about 21 hours and one has to take as many as seven ferry crossings to continue on the journey. Such a tunnel will make travelling easier and will cut down travel time by at least half. The cost of the proposed tunnel, if completed in time, has been estimated at $25 billion.
