Helsinki-Tallin: a tunnel under the Baltic sea

Helsinki and Tallinn agree to build a submarine rail tunnel under the Baltic sea: it would replace ferries, which carry 8 million passengers a year between the cities. A  trip that currently takes one hour and 40 minutes at its very shortest would last just 30 minutes.
