The Norwegian Public Roads Administration apologized for the rockfall in the Trodal tunnel on E39 on Thursday. A car was partially crushed by the rocks.

“The most important thing is that human life was not lost, and we are happy about that,” department director Svenn Finden noted.

A car was partially crushed by the rock that fell from the top of the tunnel in Masfjorden Municipality in Vestland. Another car was damaged as a result of the rock slide.

The Western Police District was notified of the accident at 2 PM on Thursday. The driver, a man in his 40s, escaped unharmed.

The Matreberg and Trodal tunnels were closed for clean-up but were reopened in the evening on Thursday.

Last inspection

The last inspection of the tunnel was in June/July this summer and was completed just three days before the incident. The tunnel has also undergone an upgrade.

“This shows that geology is not an exact science. Rock is a material that is in motion,” Finden emphasized.

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration is now reviewing its routines to see if there is anything they could have done differently.
