Contract signing for Vadlaheidatunnel
Last Friday IAV and Marti signed a contract for the Vadlaheidatunnel.
The tunnel will be 7,5 km long with road cabins on both side. It will shorten the Highway1 distance around Iceland for 16km and the approximate traffic through the tunnel per 24 hours will be 1400 cars.
Work at the tunnel begins immediately after the contract signing and it is estimated that explosion will begin in the spring on Eyjafjardar side but a year later from Fjnoskdals side.
The tunnel will be opend in 2016.
