The contract also includes 3 km of roads and there are also two bridges, of 8 m and 32 m in length. The bid from IAV and Marti was 88% of the owner's cost estimate for construction costs. The whole tunnel is on land, under the Oshlid mountain. The planned excavation method is drilling and blasting with jumbos and explosives in rock. The tunnel will be constructed from both ends. The planned primary support is rock bolts and shotcrete with reinforcement fibres. The final lining will be shotcrete and it is also planned to install water and frost protection, with 45 mm-thick PE plates, and 60 mm-thick shotcrete on top. The plates will only be set up at places where water is coming to the tunnel. The planned method for clearing of blasted rock is with dump trucks. Construction will start in May 2008 but the tunnel excavation is planned to start in August 2008 and end in October 2009. End of works is planned in July 2010.

Preinformation notice for construction of two 8 m-wide road tunnels at Hedinsfjordur and approximately 3.3 km of road sections in Northern Iceland. Estimated tunnel length in rock: 10.6 km (3.7 km and 6.9 km). Estimated length of concrete portals: 430 m. Visit http://ted.publications.eu.int/udl?request=Seek-Deliver&language=en&docid=126089-2005 or contact Vegagerdin, Reykjavik, fax +354 5221079. E-mail rg@vegagerdin.is 28/05.Vegagerdin, the Icelandic road administration, published in October 2005 a call for expressions of interest for the Héí°insfjarí°argöng project, which consists of the construction of two 8.6 m-wide road tunnels in Northern Iceland between Siglufjörí°ur and í“lafsfjörí°ur. Estimated tunnel length in rock is 10.6 km (3.7km + 6.9 km). It also includes the construction of concrete portals with estimated length of 430 m and construction of approx. 3.3 km-long road sections.Contract documents were sent on 20th January, 2006 to the six following contractors or groups of contractors: Islenskir adalverktakar / Marti Contractors; Metrostav / Hí¡fell; Istak; Arnarfell; Leonhard Nilsen & Sí¸nner / Héraí°sverk; and China Railway Shisiju Group Corporation. The contractors shall return their tenders no later than 14th March, 2006. It is estimated the contract will be awarded in the beginning of May 2006 for construction start in July 2006.The project actually includes two separate tunnels connected by a short stretch of road. Both tunnels are almost entirely situated within the same geological formations, a lava pile built up of olivine basalt layers with thin interbeds. In general, core drillings along the tunnel routes revealed a relatively solid mass of rock, feasible for the construction of tunnels. The rock mass quality (Q) is typically between 3 and 7. Earthquakes have occurred at the project area. According to IST 13, this part of the country is classified under Area 4 (highest impact area). It is assumed that the tunnels will go through at least three local geothermal sections.The design of the tunnels as well as the contract documents are based on and refer to the conventional drill-and-blast method. However, other excavation methods may be suggested in an alternative tender. Support to be implemented mostly with bolts and shotcrete with/without fibres. Decision for muck haulage method is left to the contractor. Total estimated cost ISK7.500 million.
