Four new tunnels planned under the Suez Canal

Cairo: Egypt will bore at least four tunnels under the Suez Canal, part of an $8bn project to expand the waterway. The tunnels will be for cars and trains with three based in Port Said at the northern end of the waterway.

The canal is undergoing a very significant expansion with an adjacent waterway being built alongside the existing canal to drive more traffic through the artery connecting the Red Sea with the Mediterranean. [23/11/14]
