Skanska has signed a contract with the Norwegian Road Authority to build a subsea tunnel in Rogaland County, Norway. The contract is worth approximately US$500M, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the fourth quarter 2022.
The E39 Rogfast project is a 27km long subsea road tunnel – the Boknafjord tunnel – between the municipalities Randaberg and Bokn in Rogaland County, Norway. The project is divided into segments, and the contract Skanska has signed is called E04 Boknafjord tunnel North.
The tunnel will become the world’s longest and deepest subsea road tunnel with a maximum depth of 392m below sea level. Skanska will build the northern part of the Boknafjord tunnel. It is a twin tunnel, each 10.5m in diameter, and Skanska will construct 18.5km of road in tunnel and 2km of road above ground.
Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter 2023 and will be completed in the third quarter 2029
