Teams Ready to Connect Estonia and Finland with Baltic Sea Tunnels
It could be a watershed moment for Finland and Estonia. Finnish entrepreneur Peter Vesterbacka, the former chief marketing officer of the company that developed Angry Birds, is looking to build the world's longest undersea rail tunnel, crossing the Baltic Sea to connect Helsinki, Finland and Tallinn, Estonia. The route would span more than 100 kilometers (62.1 miles), nearly twice as long as the current longest underwater tunnel. That's not all: Mr. Vesterbacka also wants to build an artificial island that could house up to 50,000 people, among other grand plans.
