The Faroe Islands are set to open an under-sea roundabout following more than three years of construction.

The underwater tunnels connect the islands of Streymoy and Eysturoy in a network some 6.8 miles (11km) long. The network is scheduled to open on 19 December.

The tunnel network will come as a relief to residents, cutting down the travel time between the capital Tórshavn and Runavík, from an hour and 14 minutes to just 16 minutes.
