A gigantic EU tunnel will connect Scandinavia to the Mediterranean. For $11 billion?

It's a marvel of construction and engineering.
Derya Ozdemir

Have you ever heard of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor? As the fifth of the Trans-European Transport Network's nine priority axes, it is a critical path for the European economy.

It spans from Finland and Sweden in the north to the island of Malta in the south, passing through Denmark, Northern, Central, and Southern Germany, Northern Italy's industrial areas, and southern Italian ports.

The Alpine mountain range between Munich and Verona, however, represents a major bottleneck for the corridor. The Brenner Base Rail tunnel is intended to solve this problem. It is scheduled to open in 2028 and seeks to reduce traffic while meeting the EU's environmental goals for preserving the future of the environmentally vulnerable alpine region. If you want to understand more about the history and recent advancements of this gigantic project, be sure to watch the video by the YouTube channel The B1M posted above, and as always, enjoy!
