HONG KONG: After years of debate, Chinese scientists are close to a consensus on the design for what would be the world’s longest undersea railway tunnel, connecting the mainland to Taiwan.

 

If realised, shuttle trains could be whizzing through a 135 kilometre undersea section of the tunnel at up to 250km per hour by 2030.
