Norway Just SHOCKED American Engineers With This Insane Megaproject
If you look at this map you will see Norway, a country of northern Europe that occupies the western half of the Scandinavian peninsula. Nearly half of the country’s population lives in the far south, in the region surrounding Oslo, the capital.
With majestic glaciers, fjords and mountains, Norway is famous for its dramatic natural landscape. Its rugged terrain, on the other hand, makes travel difficult. More than 1,000 fjords line the west coast of the Scandinavian country, which is home to one-third of the country’s 5.3 million inhabitants.
The 1,100-kilometer journey from Kristiansand in the south to Trondheim in the north via the west coast, for example, currently takes 21 hours and requires seven ferry crossings. To address these issues, something fascinating and unusual is taking place in the country, which has stunned engineers and architects around the world. What is going on in Norway, and how will this megaproject transform the country?
We explore this megaproject that has stunned engineers all over the world.
Lying on the northern outskirts of the European continent and thus avoiding the characteristics of a geographic crossroads, Norway (the “northern way”) has maintained a great homogeneity among its peoples and their way of life. Small enclaves of immigrants, mostly from southeastern Europe and South Asia, established themselves in the Oslo region in the late twentieth century, but the country’s inhabitants are overwhelmingly Nordic.
Norway has land borders only to the east—with Sweden, Finland, and Russia—with the Barents Sea to the north, the Norwegian Sea and the North Sea to the west, and the Skager Strait to the south. Norway occupies part of northern Europe’s Fennoscandian Shield.
The extremely hard bedrock, which is mostly composed of granite and other heat-and-pressure-formed materials, is one to two billion years old.
