    Why don't they build new railways instead of these projects

    Utter foolishness. Flying cars eliminate the need for all of this nonsense, would be be faster, less pollution and can be had for approximately half this price, that includes: gigafactory, R&D and flight infrastructure. Utter silliness this road project.

    Floating tunnels and bridges, okay cool but does that mean that they are made for 1 fixed water level? Will be quite tough to compensate bends due to rise or fall of water level

    Norway: We're gonna build a 630+ mile amazing coastal highway for approx $47 Billion.

    as a uk resident, is it the sensible management of oil revenue of the Norwegians that allows the cost of this massive infrastructure investment to be even thinkable?

    What if Norway invest 47 billions of dollars in drones and flying cars instead of this risky and lengthy highway, they can give each Norwegian a free of cost flying vehicle

    Are there ways we can influence the outcome? I'd totally be willing to take a trip to Norway to drive on a three-tower suspension bridge, but not for an underwater tunnel with no windows.

    Those who have been holding the Reigns for the past 500 years lying about the true nature of our Earth for power and control have greatly delayed all of the worlds ground transportation.. In 2019 all of this should have been completed by now. Earth is not a Spinning Space Rock Covered With 70% Water it is a Fixed Plane, no need to leave the earth go up to 40,000 ft and fly over an imaginary Ball. Low flying drones and shuttles to compliment a well planned ground transportation infrastructure is all that is needed.. Peace on the Plane Brothers and Sisters

      @Ani Mali the amazon is bigger/larger than Europe.. Brazil protects is forests more than any other nations. Just the forest in Sao Paulo that is t part of the Amazon is larger than europe largest forest in Poland. Brazil protects more Forest than USA & Canada together. I can keep going on all day but got to end here

    • Andre Ramos
      Andre Ramos 10 days ago +1

      @Ani Mali what? So why didnt anyone make a big deal about the Amazon before?
      After Bolsonaro the Brazilian president became president in 2019. The world waken up saying horrible things about the new brazilian president. Example he against gays, he wants to destroy the amazon, he want war and etc.. All lies... Should me one video that shows hime saying these hates topics, just one video...
      You need to understand whats going on in Brazil.
      Before the Amazon was getting rapped by ONGs and europeans nations, other countries like Canada and etc... They were strealing gold, diamonds, oil etc from the amazon. They said they were "protecting" the Amazon. Please, theres proof that they weren't protect... After Bolsonaro told them to leave brazil, keep their dirty money these few wild fires appear, very strange..
      They want brazil to beg them back.. Guess what it wont happen.

      “Senhor”, you and all the people of Brazil should be mass protesting on the streets of every single city of Brazil against the arson is going on in the Amazon Forest, which is a HORRIBLE crime against nature and against all the wonderful exotic Animals who live there. The world should be intervening, putting out the arson, and put in jail the president and all his acumplices. All of them are a bunch of “CANALHAS”, GREEDY BASTARDS, who don’t care about the environment, nature, and the wild Animals. I mean: “CANALHAS”!!!

    Only cost 2 billion? The Ted Williams Tunnel built 1995 The tunnel is 8,448 feet (2,575 m) long, of which approximately 3,960 feet (1,210 m) are underwater. A toll is collected in both directions, through the E-ZPass electronic toll collection system. A Massachusetts state official announced Wednesday that the total cost of the Big Dig, also known as the Central artery/Tunnel Project, is estimated at $24.3 billion, making it the most expensive highway project in U.S. history. this project was miniscule compare to Norway project

    This happens because the Norwegians have high taxation which is actually invested in its people.

    For a country with a population of little over 4 million, it's ridiculous and irresponsible to build something like this for mere comfort. When 47 billion can build much needed connectivity for many of the underdeveloped countries in the world

    In Nigerian, Politicians and top civil servants will slash whatever fund is allocated for the project. That's why there's horrible infrastructure crisis in said country. case in point. $16billion power project fund under the administration of ex-president Obasanjo

    • J Jamison
      J Jamison 14 days ago

      Did you mean "steal from" instead if "slash?". I'm not sure what slashing a fund would mean. In the United States we use the word slash related to money to mean decrease prices, or maybe to underfund?? An account? That would be stretching the use of that word. Try to be really specific when you pick your words. That would help everyone understand what you're saying better. Sorry if it's just a language barrier problem.

    How will they make that pay back I wonder? I know it is rich in fossil fuels but the way the world is complaining about fossil fuel then Norway cannot rely on that as income and given the small population percentage of Norway that would use the road it would take centuries to pay back $47billion dollars. Maybe that is why the EU wants our £39billion divorce money! Anyway, good luck to Norway and hopefully this brilliant engineering project gets completed and not abandoned.

    meanwhile fixing a 100 meters bridge in the Philippines will be done minimum of 6 months and cost millions of dollars. also we make bridge without river or just a regular road design like a bridge, it makes more expensive.
