Andorra Opens the €160m “Dos Valires Tunnel”
Andorra continues to invest significantly to develop her built infrastructure. Its showcase development and largest infrastructure project to date has been the construction of the 2,870m. tunnel at Dos Valires linking the La Massana valley with the Encamp valley. The cost of the seven year project is over 160m euros. It makes travel between Andorra’s two major ski areas much easier for tourists. The first blast took place on 19th October, 2005 and the last blast on 20th April, 2007. The tunnel was finally opened to the public today. 2,500 cars and commercial vehicles are expected to use the tunnel on a daily basis.
