    FinEst Link Helsinki–Tallinn Tunnel

    FinEst Link or Talsinki tunnel is the proposed fixed connection between the cities of Helsinki in Finland and Tallinn in Estonia.

    The purpose of the proposed project is to develop mobility between Helsinki and Tallinn and to provide the framework for deepening economic co-operation between Helsinki and Tallinn.

    The proposed tunnel link is also called 'Talsinki Tunnel', as this part of the Gulf of Finland is called 'Talinski' area.

The one commissioned by the Finnish and the Estonian authorities which in February 2017 commissioned two consortia were commissioned to study aspects of the project. One will study passenger and freight volumes and do a cost-benefit analysis. The other will study the technical aspects of the project.
