The Eysturoy sub-sea tunnel will be some 11 kilometres long, making it the longest sub-sea tunnel on the Faroe Islands. By way of comparison, the Vágar and Norðoy tunnels are 4.9 kilometres and 6.2 kilometres long, respectively.
The tunnel will shorten the travel distance from Tórshavn to Runavík from 55 kilometres to 17 kilometres. The travel distance from Tórshavn to Strendur will also be shortened from 55 kilometres to 17 kilometres. The 64-minute drive will be shortened to 16 minutes. The drive from Tórshavn to Klaksvík will be shortened from 68 minutes to 36 minutes.
It is estimated that more than 6000 vehicles will drive through the tunnel every day
JDC is currently decommissioning, decontaminating and demolishing the former Salem Harbor Power Plant.
Ahead of a 3-day, end of summer, Labor Day holiday weekend celebrating the building trades, Massachusetts' Local 1421 Building Wreckers and Local 4 Operating Engineers had one last job to do.
The final two sections of the Salem Harbor Power Plant's main building were brought safely to the ground at 8:47 AM on September 2, 2016.
JDC Demolition spent the better part of two months time structurally weakening and separating the structure, removing key support cross-bracing and columns. Heavy shackled cables were attached to support column plugs that were pulled initially while upper shackled cables pulled the the coal hopper northward by two excavators and the adjacent piping gallery eastward by a loader and an excavator.
One camera was temporarily lost under crushed concrete and structural steel but easily recovered, intact, to show its final seconds.

This is Europe's biggest construction site at the moment. 42 cranes are building a whole new city district for more than 20.000 people in Vienna (Austria). On February 15th 2014 there also was a big event called "Kranensee" which showed the cranes dancing to music.
