In April, the world’s longest tunnel for cyclists and pedestrians will open in Bergen, Norway. The opening ceremony will begin with a running race and a bicycle parade.
The 2.9-kilometer section runs between the residential areas of Fyllingsdalen and Mindemyren, and you have to go through the tunnel for about ten minutes to get from one end point to the other, while you can walk in 30-45 minutes, according to The Guardian. euronews.
The tunnel runs under Lövstakken Mountain. Passers-by enjoy the colorful lighting, decorations, and sculptures on their way, and the tunnel is temperature controlled.
The creation of the private road had environmental protection reasons as well as entertainment. The goal is to encourage as many people as possible to choose cycling and walking over driving. In this way, city traffic and emissions can be reduced.
Although there is a longer tunnel of 3.6 km near Seattle in the US where you can also ride a bike, the Norwegian Road is the first to be built specifically for this purpose.
