Progress at Hallandsas rail tunnelSeventeen years since the first abortive start on the 8.6 km-long Hallandsas rail tunnel the first tube between Forslov in the south and Bastad in the north finally broke through on 25.08.2010. The 3,200 t TBM Asa is being disassembled and taken back to its start point at the southern tunnel entrance ready for the west tube. Inauguration is scheduled for 2015, after an expenditure of around EUR1 billion. For more on the project click here, here and se/26. 40/10.
