The underwater roundabout that connects three submarine roads in Atlantic Ocean

The Faroe Islands have constructed the first underwater roundabout on earth as part of a tunnel project costing around 360 million euros.

Work started on the project in 2017 and it consists of three underwater roads stretching 11.24 kilometres that connect the Streymoy and Esturoy islands.

These three roads meet in the middle, forming a unique roundabout which is separated from the sea by just panels of glass.

The roundabout, designed by Trondur Patursson, is situated 180 metres under sea level in the Atlantic Ocean between Norway and the UK.

“We think people will drive through the tunnel just for the experience,” Teitur Samuelsen, the CEO of the company that carried out the project, told the Guardian.
