The Most Unusual Transport Tunnels

In some countries, wnen building a road through the forest, trees are cut down. But in some places people prefer to make a tunnel!

On November 28, 2000 in Norway the construction of the longest road tunnel vehicle on the planet was completed. By the 14th anniversary of this event we have prepared a selection of 10 of the most beautiful and unusual transport tunnels.

 

Tunnel Laerdal - unusual tunnel in the rays of the artificial dawn

Laerdal Tunnel, largest tunnel

 

Laerdal Tunnel is the longest road tunnel in the world. It connects the Norwegian capital with the city of Bergen located on the othershore. The length of the underground road is 24.51 km. So that a long stay in the confined space didn't cause a distraction for the drivers, the tunnel is divided into four sections and is equipped with lighting that mimics natural light at dawn. There are air conditioners biult in the walls to clean the air in the cave.

The surveillance cameras allow employees Laerdal track the number of "incoming" and "outgoing" vehicles and eliminate the consequences of accidents.

American artist Bill Fitzgibbon prefers to create not for the museums and galleries but for people right at the city streets. For example, Bill has created an urban rainbow. To do this, he personally decorated the tunnel at 18th Street in Birmingham (Alabama) 250 LED lights.

Guoliang Tunnel Road is located in China. It was named after the village in the mountains Tayhanshanskih in Henan Province. For several years, 350 residents of this isolated place begged the government to make a way to connect them with the rest of the world. But in 1972, tired of living in isolation village residents have decided to pave the way for civilization. In 5 years they've literally dug the way was opened for traffic.

The path was very insecure and even during the construction of the road there occured deaths of several local residents. The Guoliang Tunnel Road has a reputation of "the road that does not forgive mistakes."

Magic Arch. In early July, in Sydney (Australia) runs the annual festival of light-Vivid Sydney. Each summer the tunnel turns into a real kingdom of lights. It's just an image projection but it is visually indistinguishable from graffiti paintings.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
