Interesting concept - LINK
that would certainly be the mother of all tunnels. I watched a show on OPB about the tunnel the Taiwannese just finished... what a engineering marvel that was. The thing bores right through multiple continental fault lines. Not sure whats going to happen when an 8.0 quake hits... but it was a heck of an achievement to finish it. Took something like 13 years and 15 lives. Based on that show, my guess is that this tunnel will cost atleast 2x as much as they currently estimate.
That is interesting. Imagine being able to drive to Russia and on to parts of Europe and even subsequently Great Britain if you wanted to.
Thats exactly what I thought. I would so do that for a road trip during retirement
now all they need is a rally that runs from the tip of Chile all the way to the Portugese coast.... that would make Dakar look like a drive across town.
Sounds like a plan for the ruskie's to come over here and steal our women and D-60's !!!!!
Of course they would have to get past can-can first !!
buy the time thay get here for the dana 60s. allen mountianexplorer will have all of them hidden up on the land.
Talk aboot the ultimate endurance race !!
Yeah, but I think driving for that long in a tunnel would drive me completley nuts.
Probably a better idea than that bridge they were talking about building.
No fockin way would my ass be in a tunnel that some Ruskie just got through digging. Them people over in Russia are always getting killed in those mine shafts/tunnels and what not.
Good point. Their safety and building code standards leave much to be desired...
Flying is just more fun,and alot quicker...
But they won't let me bring my own Suburban.
"Honey, I'm heading out to the store and pick up some Vodka........ see you in 2 weeks!"
So what good is this? If you're going to pipe oil to... somewhere it can be loaded on a ship?
Maybe we'll see a boom in the Gypsy/Eskimo trading business.
Are there still Gypsies roaming around over there?
