Summary[edit]

Description
English: Hvalbiartunnilin is the oldest tunnel in the Faroe Islands. It connects Hvalba with Trongisvágur and the rest of the island Suðuroy. The tunnel was built in 1963 and is still in use (2011). The tunnel has only one lane and meeting areas to one side, it is marked with an M sign where these areas are. The tunnel is located quite far away from the village Hvalba, up in the valley on a mountain side where there are coal mines. The coal is in around the same level as the tunnel is.
Føroyskt: Hvalbiartunnilin er elsti tunnil í Føroyum. Hann var bygdur í 1963 og er enn í brúk og einasta farleið ið fólk úr Hvalba og Sandvík mugu ferðast eftir, tá tey skulu til arbeiðis á Tvøroyri ella eitt hvørt ørindi til onnur støð á oynni sum eru sunnanfyri Hvalba, ella tá tey skulu av oynni, so er einasta farleið úr Hvalba gjøgnum henda tunnilin. Vegurin Hvalbiarmeðna eitur Kolavegurin. Navnið kemur av at har eru kolanám við tunnilin. Hvalbingar hava í nógv ár ynskt nýggja tunnil, sum skal vera á sama støði sum aðrir nýmótans tunlar og hann skal vera nógv longri niðri, so tey sleppa undan at koyra niðan eftir Kolavegnum í hálku um veturin. Tunnilin er einsporaður við møtiplássum í tí eini síðuni. Har er onki ljós inni í tunlinum.
