Finest Bay Area - Railway tunnel between Finland and Estonia

The goal of the project is to construct an undersea railway tunnel between Finland and Estonia that serves both passenger and freight traf c and signi cantly reduces travel time between the countries.

The travel time target between Helsinki Airport and Ùˆlemiste airport in Estonia is approximately 20 minutes. The planned railway tunnel merges the Helsinki region and Tallinn into a single metropolis.

The tunnel will connect Asia and Europe into a single hub for business, travel and traf c, since the tunnel project makes it possible to travel to Tallinn by train directly from Helsinki Airport. On the Estonian side, the possible connection with the Rail Baltica project will connect the region even more closely to Central Europe.
