EU provides €1 million for Tallinn-Helsinki tunnel feasibility study

The feasibility study must find out whether it pays to build an undersea tunnel, what are the technical options in construction of the tunnel and the project’s potential impact on the environment. Safety issues will be examined, along with expected profitability, and alternatives such as developing ferry traffic will also be looked at.

This study is the first to be conducted on the state level and will focus on the tunnel’s socio-economical effects and geological analysis. The feasibility study is expected to be completed by February 2018.
