In October, the State Road Administration closes Hortenstunnelen on Highway 19. The tunnel will be rehabilitated, and due to its extensive work it must be closed completely.


Work on the tunnel has already begun on the outside, but from Monday 15 October until Monday 12 November, the tunnel will be completely closed.

The work in the tunnel includes the installation of safety equipment inside and outside the tunnel, led lights, emergency stations, new signs, bars, red stop lights and new ventilation systems.

During this period all traffic to the ferry connection Moss-Horten is led over county road 310 from Kopstadkrysset on E18 to Horten harbor. Along the E18 in Vestfold and E6 in Østfold it was said that module trucks must drive via Oslo, explains Vegvesenet.
