Morocco and Spain to bore a 39km rail tunnel under the Strait of Gibraltar

For those of you who get sick during ferry travel this would be the perfect answer and for others it will be an adventure ride . A Swiss firm takes on this ambitious project across the Strait of Gibraltar.
Moroccan experts say the long-mooted 39km rail tunnel would be among the world’s most sophisticated engineering works and rival the Channel Tunnel linking England and France. Moroccan authorities displayed blueprints of the project.
Its to be a very expensive project costing between $US7 billion ($A9.1 billion) and $US17 billion ($A22.09 billion). Mainly due to the seabed under the Strait of Gibraltar, which is more permeable than it is around the Channel Tunnel. This tunnel is to connect Africa and Europe, even though the countries involved have very little in common.
