Norwegian public roads authority Statens Vegvesen is looking for contractors to build two new road tunnels.
A new road, the 6312 along Berfjorden in Roan Municipality in Trøndelag County, is to be avalanche and landslide safe with the construction of two tunnels. The 920m Måvik tunnel and 670m Berfjord tunnel, as well as 1.1km of road.
Divided into two stretches - Måvika to Inner Berfjorden for the Måvik tunnel and from Jektvika to Ramsvika for the Berfjord tunnel – the existing road is to be made wider with a new exits and lay-bys.
The tunnel portals are planned to be 8m in Måvika and Jektvika with the portals in Inner Berfjord and Ramsvika at 10m, with the final location of the portaling and tunnel portals will be decided when condition of the rock has been clarified.
According to Statens Vegvese, the existing road is narrow and exposed to avalanches and landslides.
Due to the avalanche and landslide danger along the existing road, Statens Vegvesen plan the Måvik tunnel to be tunnelled from north to south, and it is to be decided for the Berfjord tunnel.
Interested parties have until 10 December 2018 to register their tender.
