While some nations in Africa are still battling with seasonal repairs of old roads, reports have it that a new 11.2km undersea road tunnel was recently completed in Europe and it is simply gorgeous, to say the least.
Reports state that the tunnel will be launched on the 19th of December at Faroe Island and it is expected to help shorten a 64-minute journey down to just a 16-minute one. What’s more shocking about this new undersea road tunnel is the incredible 11.2km length which simply means that it is just 0.6 km shorter than the popular Lagos 3rd Mainland bridge.

According to media reports, this new undersea road tunnel is specifically located in the Faroe Island which is a collection of 18 different Islands that cover between Norway and Iceland Europe. It is quite interesting to know that press reports say it took 3 years of intensive construction works to complete this new undersea road roundabout project.
Now that the unique road project is set to be launched soon, sources claim that it will majorly connect the Island of Eysturoy and Streymoy via an underwater tunnel of 11.2 kms (6.8 miles) travel distance.
