The world's longest road tunnel is currently under construction in Western Norway, the 'Rogfast' project, or the 'Rogaland Fixed Link Project', which is part of E39 north of Stavanger.

The twin-tube tunnel will be 26.5 km (16.5 miles) long and drops 392 meters below sea level, making it almost the lowest point on earth you can reach by vehicle (slightly less deep than the Dead Sea).

There is also a diamond interchange below the seabed for a side tunnel to Kvitsøy.

Construction is currently underway and scheduled for completion in 2031.
