Billions for a tunnel
I just came across a newspaper article on an Italian daily about an underwater tunnel built in China.
Undoubtedly, the infrastructure of the Chinese tunnel would be different to that necessary for the one hypothesised for the Malta-Gozo link. Yet, it’s interesting to note that the length of the tunnel is more or less the distance between our two islands, 5.5 kilometres. I however nearly fell off the chair when I read that the cost of the tunnel in China is a staggering €7.5 billion.
Thank God we have Chris Said here on the Maltese islands; we can get away with it for a meagre €150 million.
