The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) is undertaking the Rogfast Subsea Tunnel project connecting Harestad in Randaberg municipality and Arsvagen in Bokn municipality, Norway.

The project involves the construction of a 2X27km subsea tunnel which will run to a depth of 392m below sea level on the North Sea coast of western Norway.

The project includes the construction of four lanes, a freeway, ventilation shafts, toll stations and installation of ventilators, emergency warning system, phone, and radio communication systems, fire fighting system and air-conditioning systems.

The tunnel is being constructed using tunnel boring machine (TBM) and drilling & blasting method.

The project will be implemented in three main construction packages namely:

-Kvitsøy Lot E02 includes the construction of 21km tunnel forming an interchange below the island of Kvitsøy with the value of US$328 million.

-Harestad Lot E03 includes the construction of 16km of a tunnel on the Stavanger side with the value of US$293 million.

-Laupland Lot E04 includes the construction of 19km tunnel on the northern end of the route value of US$269 million

Smaller Underground Packages includes: E011 Mekjarvik Lot involving a 700m long tunnel and E013 Arsvagen Lot involves a total 4km of drill+blast excavation of construction transportation, ventilation tunnels and a twin-tube branch tunnel at the northern end of the undersea crossing.

The government of Norway will provide a funding of US$1,161 million, while the rest of the funding would be acquired in the form of debts. The debts will be paid off from the collection of the toll.
