Chinese city to build 9km tunnel

17 Aug 12 The Chinese coastal city of Xiamen began work yesterday on a 6bn yuan (£602m) undersea tunnel linking the downtown island with the major industrial district.

The bottom of the tunnel will be built 72.6m below the ocean surface.

The tunnel is part of a planned network of highways to improve logistics in the region, which is a focus of Taiwanese investment. Xiamen was one of the first special economic zones set up in China some 30 years ago. Business used to be focused in the downtown island but has expanded into mainland areas.
