Bergen to Stalheim

A car drive starting Bergen International Airport

Floyfjell Tunnel 3830 m
The twin-tube tunnel was built in the late 1980s as part of the city's motorway network.
It passes through under the hill Floyfjell funicular runs.

The road sign shows the important junction, of E16 and E39, is approaching.

E16 runs along a fjord lake, sometimes along the railway between Bergen and Flaem.

A landslide at E16

State emergency road crews managed to reopen a key portion of E16 highway on 13 June,
less than a week after it was buried by a huge landslide. The crews from state highway department worked
day and night to clear the road, and now top politicians promise a new tunnel will be built so that
the highway would not run along the steep mountainside bordered by a fjord.

The E16 highway was buried by a surprise landslide on June 8, just outside the Hyvings Tunnel at Bolstad near Voss, but state highway crews managed to reopen the road on June 13.

The landslide June 8 shocked even veteran geologists, and scared many users because of its sheer size.
It measured around 60 meters wide, sending an estimated 10,000 cubic meters of rock, dirt and trees
thundering down the mountainside near the Hyvings Tunnel at Bolstad, between Bergen and Voss. 
It took around 1,000 truckloads to clear away the rubble. on June 13, one lane of the road was opened
with manual signals to direct traffic. That means there will still be traffic delays on the road, but motorists
can avoid lengthy detours via other highways.

The work on clearing the road had initially been delayed because of rocks that continued to fall from
high above the roadside, creating hazards for anyone below. Transport officials have decided to build
a new E16 with a tunnel through the area, but work cannot be started before 2021 at the earliest.
