Experts evaluate tunnel to Helsinki2008-04-03
Estonian and Finnish experts estimate that the protocol of intent signed yesterday by Tallinn and Helsinki city executives to establish a rail tunnel under the Gulf of Finland would be technically feasible as the seabed is well suited for a tunnel. If financial backing becomes available, one could in future be able to reach Helsinki in 30 minutes. Finnish geo-technology expert Usko Anttikoski predicts in the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat that the price could be two to three billion euros. According to the deputy Mayor of Tallinn, Jaanus Mutli, Tallinn and Helsinki would first have to agree on whether to commission a feasibility study costing 8-12 million kroons.
