The tunnel drainage system should probably have been built to handle it, but the rainfall has been extreme at the south coast of Norway, with some rivers now higher than ever recorded. Currently 40 roads are registered as closed.

Is Norway the country with the most suspension bridges in the World?

I know it does not have the highest count or length of road tunnels, which still belongs to Italy AFAIK.

If you consider km of tunnel per capita, it's Norway hands down.

Approximately half of all suspension bridges in Europe are located in Norway.

However Norway and Italy are very different. Italian bridges typically span valleys as part of a motorway or other high-standard road. Norwegian bridges typically span fjords or other bodies of water, most of them are on secondary roads.

I don't know, but there aren't that many here yet. Surely there have to be more in large countries such as China, the US, Russia etc? What we do have however is quite a low population so we would probably be up there on a per capita basis.

Don't the Faroe Islands have an insane amount of tunnels per capita?

According to Wikipedia, at least, both Norway and Italy are far behind Japan and China on total tunnel lengths, but the list appears very incomplete, lacking eg. USA, and using a large span of reference years. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List..._tunnel_length

The numbers for Norway should be around 1140 tunnels "in daily use" and approaching 1200 kilometer of road in tunnels according to this article from earlier this year.

Edit: I took an added the information to Wikipedia.

The U.S. (and Canada for that matter) have very few tunnels compared to Europe. By far the best known tunnel in the Rocky Mountains, the Eisenhower Tunnel, is only 3.4 kilometers long.

Eisenhover Tunnel is 2.7 km long (3,400 meters is its altitute, that makes the tunnel remarkable despite its not impressive lenght).
There are few longer tunnels in the USA too.

Faer Oer islands, for many purposes, work as an independent country. Their bounds with Denmark are very weak, and limited to aspects like foreign policy and currency.

E136 / Mannen

Mannen is on the move again. It moved 20 centimeters in one day, the largest movement recorded so far. The underlying area has been evacuated and the danger level has been moved up to 'high'.

E136 has not been closed at this moment though.

This rockfall will be large, but most of these masses will not reach the railroad or the houses, but smaller rocks and debre might reach the river which is why they evacuate everyone at Lyngheim, Rønningen and Lyngheimsgjerdet.

The piece of rock on the move is a small part high up on B in this map. Section A, B and C is what makes up the entire moving part of Mannen (100 million cubic meters). Section A has a speed of about 10cm pr year. Section B has a speed of 5cm pr year. Section C has a speed of less than 1cm pr year. Its expected that section A and B will fall down within the year of 2100. When they do they will destroy today's railroad-line, European rout 136, several farms and houses and dam up the Rauma river for a while. A potential breakup might be catastrophic for the city of Åndalsnes 5km further down the river.

Section A: 2-4 million m3 Section A+B: 15-25 million M3 Section A, B and C: 100 million m3

Do they have plans to reroute the road (quite an important link) and the railway before the imminent collapse? A long tunnel under the other side of the valley should suffice.

You should maybe update your edit....

According to vegvesen.no/vegkart, there is in fact currently 1393 (public) road tunnel tubes in Norway, with a total length of 1333 km. (There is also a classification called tunnel tube w/o traffic, but these 215 tubes do not seem to be included in the 1393 road tunnel tubes. Many of these are either escape routes or closed down tunnels, I suppose)

As indicated by the article, both the number and length of tunnels are increasing rapidly. At the time of writing, 50 tunnels were under construction (30 above 500 m), with a total length of 110 km.

In total 1182 tunnels have been registered in vegvesen.no/vegkart. Taking into account the number under construction this is not in direct conflict with the article written this spring. However, only 100 are categorized as dual tube and 3 are tripple tube (?). For 52 tunnels, the number of tubes is not specified, which most likely means single tube. For the math to add up to 1393 tubes, however, all of these have to be twin tube, and some even have to have more than two tubes. Maybe there is a subtelty in the definition of "tunnel tube", for instance in complicated systems with underground intersections / ramps?

There are more than 22 000 bridges, with a total length of 893 km. Most of these bridges are in other words rather short. With regards to classification of these, it was a mess in "vegkart", but it seems like at least 83 were suspension bridges. Typically these may expected to be among the longer bridges, of course.
