Ever Hear Of a Ship Tunnel?

The first one is going to be built in Norway.  It will be called the Stad Ship Tunnel.  It will be a mile long and will save ships from going through treacherous waters.  Here is a photo of what it will look like.  Find a link to the story below the photo.

Interesting, I guess it will be OK for small ships and local travel.  No major lines can access it.

I do not think I'd enjoy going through that....... it must have a hell of a HVAC system  to keep the air fresh in there from the ship fumes.  Nervous

 

In years to come you know it will have its walls covered in advertisements and ship soot.

They have tunnels under water for cars, so having one for a ship makes sense.

Tunnels for cars keep the water out. This is just a flooded tunnel.   What happens when the ventilation system goes down ( and they always do ) ?  I've worked in tunnels when that happened. Not a good situation.

I guess that we will have to wait and see how this goes.  Perhaps ships will go through at night.  I can't see how the largest ships will do through here.

It definitely isn't for someone that is claustrophobic.

Who needs a tunnel when Carnival has this?  LOL

The emergency oxygen mask will drop from the ceiling. If you're traveling with a small child or someone needing help?  Please put on your mask on first. The oxygen will flow even if the bag doesn't inflat. 

Thank you and please enjoy your cruise.
