Finland and Estonia reveal costs of building undersea rail tunnel linking their two capitals
Following a feasibility study, Finland and Estonia want to build a permanent undersea link between their two northern capitals, situated on the opposite sides of the Gulf of Finland. The FinEst Link would connect the cities’ airports and it would also link up with Rail Baltica, a line between Tallinn and Warsaw that's due to be completed in 2026. The proposed 103 km long tunnel would shorten the travel time between Helsinki and Tallinn to about 30 minutes, from at least 90 minutes currently by fast ferry. The feasibility study estimated the tunnel would cost 13-20 billion euros, hoping that 40 percent of the costs would come from the European Union.
