Europe 10 EU Priority Projects
The projects clearly reflect the priority attached to strengthening alternatives to road transport. About 80% of their total ECU 91 billion investment is on rail links and a further 9% on road/rail links. Only 10 % is earmarked for new road building.
Le tunnel de base qui reliera St Jean-de-Maurienne à Susa, en passant sous le Mont d'Ambin, est la pièce maîtresse du projet. D'une longueur de 52 kilomètres, il se prolonge par le tunnel de contournement de Bussoleno sur 12 kilomètres.

Norway Submerged Floating Tunnel, a transportation concept for crossing straits, fjords, sounds and lakes
The Submerged Floating Tunnel - the natural way to bridge water. The submerged floating tunnel utilizes lakes and waterways to carry traffic under water and on to the other side, where it can be conveniently linked to the rural network or to the underground infrastructure of modern cities.
NSFT was established in 1998 to develop and market the concept of submerged floating tunnels. At the time, an SFT crossing of Høgsfjord on the west coast of Norway looked likely to the first of a kind SFT for road traffic in the world and the SFT was considered an option in other national and international bridge studies.
This tubular structure is to be submerged 25­30 meters below the water surface.
NTNU's Department of Structural Engineering have tested the underwater suspension tunnel by means of a numerical model.The bridge will have two lanes for motor vehicles and a combined pedestrian path and bicycle track.
