An underwater railway may soon connect Africa and Europe by train

If plans to build a €6 billion tunnel come to fruition, the 27-kilometre underwater tunnel could connect Europe's high-speed rail network with North Africa as early as 2030

Spain is considering an ambitious underwater railway tunnel project to connect its territory with Morocco, a famous tourist destination.

Spain and Morocco, two countries separated by just 29 kilometres of the narrow Strait of Gibraltar, are popular tourist destinations for Europeans.

Many travellers take advantage of the opportunity to combine a holiday in Spanish resorts with a visit to Moroccan cities such as Casablanca or Fez.

Currently, the most frequently chosen means of transport on this route are plane and ship. However, if plans to build an underwater railway tunnel come to fruition, trains could become the preferred mode of transport on this route.

According to National Geographic, the idea of ​​building a railway tunnel under the Strait of Gibraltar, connecting Europe with Africa, first appeared in 1979. The inspiration for this project was the Channel Tunnel, connecting Dover in Great Britain with Calais in France.

If plans to build a €6 billion tunnel come to fruition, the 27-kilometre underwater tunnel could connect Europe’s high-speed rail network with North Africa as early as 2030.

However, this date is not accidental – in 2030, Spain, Portugal and Morocco will host FIFA World Cup.
