Chinese to build 100km Tallinn-Helsinki tunnel

16 Jul A consortium of Chinese companies has been chosen for the design and construction of an undersea tunnel linking Tallinn in Estonia with Helsinki in Finland.

The Chinese-funded Finnish company working on the project has announced that it will work with three Chinese companies on the final design and construction of the 100km tunnel, which forms part of Beijing’s Belt and Road initiative.

FinEst Bay Area Development said that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with China Railway International Group, China Railway Engineering Company, China Communications Construction Company and financier Touchstone Capital Partners.
