The Tunnel Between Trongisvágur and Hvalba

The road tunnel to Hvalba (a village in Suđuroy in the Faroe Islands) was made in 1963, it is the oldest of the tunnels in the Faroe Islands. As the signs say the vehicles must not be wider than 2,5 metres and not higher than 3,2 metres. The tunnel has only one lane, but there are areas where cars can pull aside so they can meet other cars.

I will be visiting the Faroe Islands this year. If there is anything in particular that people here would like me to photograph, please let me know. The new terminal at the airport should be open by then, but I expect by that time there will already be photos on the Internet.

It would be nice to have more pictures of that roundabout junction inside a tunnel.

I'll see what I can do, but lighting might be a problem. Which island is it on?

AF Gruppen has made the lowest bid to construct two long undersea tunnels. They made a bid of € 250 million (1.875 billion crowns).

The contract is for the construction of two long tunnels.

The Eysturoyar Tunnel will be a tunnel with two branches under the Skála Fjord north of Tórshavn. It will connect the northeast of the Faroe Island with Tórshavn much quicker. It is 11 kilometers long and goes 248 meters below sea level. For that reason, it will be a three-lane tunnel.

The Sandoyar Tunnel connects the southern island of Sandoy to the main islands. It will replace a ferry. It is 10.6 kilometers long and goes 155 meters below sea level. This will be a two-lane tunnel.

Preliminary construction on the Eysturoyar Tunnel has alread begun and will be completed by 2019. Construction of the Sandoyar Tunnel will commence in 2018 and be completed by 2021.

The location of the two tunnels:

I see the title is missing the international vehicle registration code of the Faroe Islands, which is officially "FO".

Why does no moderator add the code?

Can anyone point me to an official road number list? Google and OSM differ a fair bit, with other sources suggesting both have problems.

I returned from my Faroe Islands trip yesterday. I didn't really check the road numbers, but from what I saw Google's was quite ok. There are not really many roads there.

I will post some pictures here once I manage to edit them, I have a lot and not much time
Until then, this video from the 1 lane tunnel at Trřllanes, Kalsoy.

This page has some cool images of the Eysturoy Tunnel, including the underwater roundabout.
