And @SkyMan want to tell the norwegians what do do  or not to do with their money

Geez. I'm just asking a question.  Unknot your panties.  Lot of money for a little gain as far as I can see but like I said...

Of course it is up to Norway and Norwegian taxpayers

Don't post anything about Norway if you can't handle a few questions.

Careful, you have asked a question which will bring the wrath of all Scandinavia...  just sayin'

In the video the first they show is 27Km but it doesn't show the entire length.  The part they show is underground.  Then there is a small part where the tunnel appears to be laying on the sea bed.  The next crossing is a floating bridge but I would assume some of the fjords farther north would require undersea tunnels that are above the deep sea bottoms.  Although the actual construction process isn't shown I'd assume they will submerge large sections of tube and connect them and then pump out the water.  Pretty cool.  I'm sure there will be episodes of Impossible Engineering on this.  The pressures of withstanding moving seas will be tough to deal with.
