China, Japan, Korea plan rail tunnels
Published on Sep 22, 2010
A feasibility study has been launched with a view to connecting China, Japan and South Korea with highspeed railways, via undersea tunnels. According to a Channel NewsAsia report, citing Korean media reports, a South Korean state research institute is expected to reveal the findings of the study to the country’s Transport Ministry by the end of the year. The tunnels would connect China’s eastern port of Weihai with the west coast of Korean peninsula, while a second tunnel would connect South Korea’s southern port of Busan with the Japanese island of Tsushima and Fukuoka port.
