Transatlantic Tunnel: Underwater Tunnel - Classic Documentary
 
42:43
Transatlantic Tunnel: Underwater Tunnel - Classic Documentary A transatlantic tunnel is a theoretical tunnel that would span the Atlantic Ocean between North America and Europe possibly for such purposes as mass transit. Some proposals envision technologically advanced trains reaching speeds of 500 to 8,000 kilometres per hour (310 to 4,970 mph). Most conceptions of the tunnel envision it between the United States and the United Kingdom ‒ or more specifically between New York City and London.

Mumbai - Fujairah (Dubai) Underwater Train Tunnel Project
 
02:51
The project is meant to connect the UAE and the other GCC countries for the first time with India via a Tunnel and an Ultra Speed subsea railway line ; with the aim of improving the Bilateral Trade between the two nations. The Fujairah-Mumbai Tunnel & Subsea Ultra Speed Train Line Project is currently at the Concept stage. The floating underwater tunnel would consist of two curved concrete tubes, submerged below the surface of the Arabian Sea . The submerged tubes would be stabilize by being attached to pontoons on the surface of the sea or vertical tethers to the sea floor. There would be enough gaps between the pontoons to allow ships to pass through. The tubes would be placed underwater, deep enough to avoid water traffic and weather. The Main benefits from Project are : 1. Commute Passengers, Tourists & workers Between the UAE ( as well as other GCC Countries ) and India 2. Export Oil From Fujairah Port To India via a Pipeline 3. Import water from Narmada River North of Mumbai ( it is well noted that The Narmada River is flooding during monsoon season ; excess water can exported to the UAE ) 4. Transport Goods & commodities between both nations. It is expected that the project will help increase the trade and the influx of tourists from both sides. The speed of train is set to be 1000 km/h , the 1826km distance between Mumbai to Fujairah station can be covered within 2hrs. Future plan includes a making a provision for road to be constructed within the floating tunnel for cars and truck transportation ; as well as & Floating Hotel and shopping centre fuel stations at the middle of the Arabian Sea were commuters can rest and shop. Future Train stations may include the port city of Karachi in Pakistan & Muscat the capital city of Oman.

03:26:18
Get a ride throughout whole Montenegro, from the Adriatic Sea to the galleries and tunnels in the mountainous part of the country. Railway line Belgrade - Bar rises from the sea level to an altitude of 1032 m. The lowest point of the railway line is 3m altitude and it is located in the Port of Bar. The railway then slowly climbs to the Sozina tunnel. The Sozina tunnel, 6171m long, is the longest tunnel on the Belgrade - Bar line. After passing through the mountain Rumija the railway line meanders through the valley of Lake Skadar. Until the city Podgorica railway line is located in the plain. After the city of Podgorica the line becomes much more interesting. There is a canyon of the river Morača. The line runs through a multitude of tunnels and galleries, across many bridges and continuously climbs towards Kolasin. To overcome the high altitude difference at a short distance, a serpentine was made in the canyon of Mala Rijeka river. On that part the line crossing over the highest railway bridge in Europe. Mala Rijeka bridge has a height of 200m from river to track. On one part of the railway there is a tunnel Trebesica with a bridge built in it. During the digging of the tunnel mountain cleavages have encountered. This part of track had to be bridged. After Trebesica tunnel there is a continental climate and a different flora and fauna. The line highest point is located in the tunnel, near Kolašin. After Kolašin the line descends towards Bijelo Polje. The whole Belgrade - Bar railway line has 254 tunnels and 234 bridges. There are 102 tunnels and 96 bridges in Montenegro. The most prominent infrastructure facilities in the Montenegrin part are: - Tunnel "Sozina" ( 6171m ), - Bridge "Tanki rt" ( 200m ), - Bridge "Mala Rijeka" ( 499m long, 200m height ), - Tunnel "Trebesica" ( 5172m ), - Tunnel "Ostrovica" ( 3827m ), - Tunnel "Šljivovica" ( 2194m ), - Bridge "Tara I" ( 270m long ), - Tunnel "Radigojno" ( 2370m ), - Bridge "Tara III" ( 340m long ), - Tunnel "Razvršje" ("Mojkovac") ( 3246m ) and - Bridge "Ljuboviđa" ("Slijepač most") ( 450m long ).

Norway ship tunnel: Norway to spend $315m building world’s first ship tunnel - TomoNews
 
06:36
OSLO, NORWAY — The Norwegian Public Roads Administration believes floating underwater tunnels could be the key to shorter driving times in the country. Norway is home to more than 1,100 fjords, the deep glacial water inlets that divide land masses. Getting over one means taking a ferry, and that can add hours to a car trip. Because fjords can be up to a mile deep, building a bridge over the waterway or tunnel underneath is not very practical. But Norwegian engineers think they can build a quicker way. They want to float concrete tunnels up to 100 feet below the ocean’s surface. This would allow ships to sail unobstructed by bridges. Floating pontoons would hold the concrete tunnels in place. Engineers hope the ambitious $25 billion project will be completed by 2035. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

World’s longest and most expensive railway tunnel, Gotthard Base Tunnel, to open in June - TomoNews
 
01:41
ZURICH — The world’s longest and most expensive railway tunnel opens on Wednesday in Switzerland. The Gotthard Base Tunnel originates in Erstfeld in the canton of Uri and ends in Bodio in the canton of Tessin. Stretching 57 kilometers long, it will overtake Japan’s Seikan Tunnel and the Channel Tunnel between England and France as the world’s longest. At 2.3km under the Alps, it will also be the deepest railway tunnel in the world. The tunnel uses a system of two one-way tracks, linked by emergency escape routes. Trains travel on an almost entirely flat track and are able to reach maximum speeds of 250 kilometers per hour. The tunnel will cut the train journey time between Zurich and Milan by one hour to just about three hours. The tunnel will be also used for freight trains. About 260 freight trains will be able to use the tunnel per day, compared to a maximum of 180 trains using the current route. It is hoped that the tunnel will reduce the Alpine road traffic and consequently reduce CO2 emissions. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Short Film of Qamchiq Tunnel Construction at Uzbekistan Angren - Pap railway
 
07:47
THE president of Uzbekistan Mr Islam Karimov and his Chinese counterpart Mr Xi Jinping inaugurated the 123.1km Angren - Pap railway on June 22 in an event which also marked the opening of Central Asia's longest railway tunnel. The 19.2km Qamchiq Tunnel was built by China Railway Tunnel Group and local contractors, with around 4000 people working on the project. Construction began in 2013 and tracklaying in the $US 810m single-track tunnel was completed on May 25 this year. The inaugural train was formed of an electric locomotive and four coaches, and completed its passage through the tunnel in 16 minutes and 30 seconds. In addition to the tunnel, the $US 1.63bn line includes four stations, 25 bridges, and six viaducts with a total length of 2.1km and an average height of 25m. The 1520mm-gauge line is electrified at 3kV dc with two substations supplying traction power. The new railway provides a direct link between the capital Tashkent and Uzbekistan's second-largest city Namangan and will also enable east-west freight traffic to avoid the transit route through northern Tajikistan. Freight traffic is forecast to be around 10 million tonnes per year with passenger numbers expected to reach around 600,000 in the first year of operation. Reaching an altitude of 2267m above sea level, the Qamchiq pass carries the only highway between the two cities entirely in Uzbek territory was it is the only route that could feasibly be taken by a railway through the narrow strip of Uzbek territory between the Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan borders.

Railway Tunnel with China's Biggest Cross Section Completed in NW China
 
01:22
A railway tunnel with the largest cross sectional area in China was completed Tuesday in the country’s northwest Gansu Province after more than seven years of construction. Its maximum cross sectional area is 350 square meters, or 2.5 times the size of common railway tunnels, making it the largest ever constructed in China. The 9,164-meter Xinchengzi tunnel is part of the railway line connecting the province's capital of Lanzhou with Chongqing Municipality in southwest China. The complex geological structure on the northeast edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau where the tunnel stands make the excavation work extremely difficult, according to the tunnel’s contractor, China Railway 11th Group Co., Ltd. The completion of the tunnel will greatly facilitate the operation of the Lanzhou-Chongqing railway line stretching 915 kilometers, said the contractor.

World Top 10 Longest Underwater Tunnels
 
02:02
World Top 10 Longest Underwater Tunnels 1. Seikan Tunnel -- 53.9 km -Japan's Seikan Tunnel is the longest underwater tunnel in the world, and is located beneath the Tsugaru Strait. The tunnel connects Hokkaido Island with the Aomori Prefecture. The tunnel was constructed as the government's response to the unfortunate sinking of five ferry ships due to a typhoon back in 1954, which resulted in public outrage. As engineers saw that extreme weather conditions made bridges too risky, an undersea tunnel would be the safest way to go. The tunnel was completed in March of 1998, which saw the start of all railway transport using the tunnel. 2. Channel Tunnel -- 37.9 km-The Channel Tunnel Connects Folkestone in the United Kingdom to Pas-De-Calais, in northern France. It is owned by Eurotunnel, and has single direction tunnels where the national freight trains, Eurostar, and the Eurotunnel shuttle runs. A central service tunnel is connected to all of the lanes, which also provides access to maintenance and emergency teams. The service tunnel also provides a safety point in the event of an emergency, and passengers would need to be evicted. Special multi-functional vehicles were created for traveling within the service tunnel, designed to arrive at the scene or bring passengers to safety in record time. 3. Tokyo Bay Aqua line -- 15 km-The Tokyo Bay Aqua line is also recognized as a toll highway which spans the Tokyo Bay of Japan. The Tokyo Bay Aqua line opened to the public in December 1997, since planning and construction took 31 years. The tunnel connects Kisazaru City to Kawasaki City; and before the tunnel to cross both cities it required one to drive 100 kilometers along the Tokyo Bay; or to take a ferry. 4. Bomlafjord Tunnel -- 7.8 km-The Bomlafjord Tunnel is part of the Triangle Link Project, together with 3 other bridges designed to connect the islands of Stord, Bomlo, and Fittjar in Norway. The tunnel also forms three lanes of the European Road E39. Construction of the Bomlafjord Tunnel began in 1997, although plans had already been materialized since the 1980's. By 2011, the tunnel began receiving as much as 3,966 vehicles a day. Safety measures have also been integrated into the tunnel; 5. Eiksund Tunnel -- 7.7 km-The Eiksund Tunnel in Norway connects the mainland to Hareidlandet Island, and Eika island. Although it was intended to open to the public in July 2007, construction suffered numerous delays which caused it to open instead on February 2008. It was constructed and is operated by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, and the same body is responsible for the tunnel's maintenance. The tunnel is divided into three lanes of traffic per day, with 1,000 vehicles crossing it, half of which are freight trucks. 6. North Cape Tunnel -- 6.8 km -The North Cape Tunnel is one of the longest underwater tunnels in Norway, and is located in the Nordkapp Municipality in the northern area of the country. It is located beneath the Magerøysundet strait, and connects Mageroya island to the mainland. It first opened to the public in June of 1999, but before that, a ferry had to carry passengers and freight across the seas from Honningsvag and Kajford. The North Cape tunnel is also a part of the European route E69. 7. Severn Tunnel -- 3.62 km-Located in the United Kingdom, the Severn Tunnel connects South Gloucestershire to Monmouthshire, beneath the River Severn. Construction of the Severn Tunnel was carried out from 1873 to 1886, by the Great Western Railway. Although the tunnel's construction was completed in 1885, it took 14 years before the tunnel could service goods trains and passenger traffic because pumping systems were still unfinished. Before the high speed 1 tunnels were built in London, the Severn Tunnel served as the country's longest mainline tunnel. 8. Vardo Tunnel -- 2.9 km- 9. Sydney Harbour Tunnel -- 2.8 km-The Sydney Harbour Tunnel became operational in August of 1992, and connects the Warringah Freeway to the Eastern Distributor as a means of decongesting the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is operated by the Sydney Harbour Tunnel Company, but on August of 2022 it will be under public ownership. The tunnel is a twin-tube road tunnel, with two lanes in each direction. Three sections make up the tunnel: the 960 meter immersed tube structure 10. Thames Tunnel -- 0.4 km-The Thames Tunnel is the oldest underwater tunnel in the world and opened back in 1843. People came from across the globe to witness the Thames Tunnel, because it was the first tunnel to be built under a navigable river through the use of tunneling shield technology, which was new at the time. Located under the Thames River in London, United Kingdom; the Thames Tunnel connects the cities of Wapping and Rotherhithe. Although it was originally built for the purpose of horse-drawn carriages, source-http://www.therichest.com/expensive-lifestyle/location/the-10-longest-underwater-tunnels-in-the-world/

The Longest Deepest Tunnel in the World
 
04:01
SUPPORT CR on PATREON: http://bit.ly/2qBHcvf The Gotthard Base Tunnel stretches 35.5 miles (57.5 km) under the Alps in Switzerland. Completed in 2016 after a nearly 20 years of construction, the tunnel overtook the Seikan Tunnel in Japan as the longest in the world. Aside from being the longest underground tunnel in the world, it is also the deepest ever constructed. Part of the tunnel bores under Piz Vatgira, a nearly 10,000-foot tall mountain in the Swiss Alps. Underneath the peak of this mountain, the tunnel sits 1.42 miles (2.3 km) underneath the surface. That equates to 1.5 times the deepest point in the Grand Canyon, all sitting over the heads of the passengers on the high-speed trains that travel through the tunnel.

The Longest Tunnel in The World
 
43:20
The Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is a railway tunnel through the Alps in Switzerland. It opened on 1 June 2016, and full service began on 11 December 2016. With a route length of 57 km (35.4 mi) and a total of 151.84 km (94.3 mi) of tunnels, shafts and passages, it is the world's longest rail tunnel, surpassing the Seikan Tunnel in Japan. Its main purpose is to increase total transport capacity across the Alps, especially for freight, notably between Germany and Italy, and more particularly to shift freight volumes from road to rail to reduce environmental damage caused by ever-increasing numbers of heavy lorries. A secondary benefit will be to cut the journey time for passenger trains from Zürich to Milan by about an hour and from Zürich to Lugano to 1-hour 40 minutes. The project consists of two single-track tunnels. It is part of the AlpTransit project, also known as the New Railway Link through the Alps (NRLA), which includes the Lötschberg Base Tunnel between the cantons of Bern and Valais and the under construction Ceneri Base Tunnel (scheduled to open late 2019) to the south. It bypasses the Gotthardbahn, a winding mountain route opened in 1882 across the Saint-Gotthard Massif, which is now operating at capacity, and establishes a direct route usable by high-speed rail and heavy freight trains. The total cost of the project is 9.8 billion Swiss francs, or US$10.3 billion. When completed, the Gotthard Base Tunnel will be one of the longest tunnel construction projects in the world: 20 years of constant construction and preparation.

World's Longest Tunnel - How It Was Built - Full Documentary
 
45:08
The Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT; German: Gotthard-Basistunnel, Italian: Galleria di base del San Gottardo, Romansh: Tunnel da basa dal Son Gottard) is a railway tunnel through the Alps in Switzerland. It opened on 1 June 2016, and full service began on 11 December 2016. With a route length of 57.09 km (35.5 mi), it is the world's longest and deepest traffic tunnel and the first flat, low-level route through the Alps. It lies at the heart of the Gotthard axis and constitutes the third tunnel connecting the cantons of Uri and Ticino, after the Gotthard Tunnel and the Gotthard Road Tunnel. The link consists of two single-track tunnels connecting Erstfeld (Uri) with Bodio (Ticino) and passing below Sedrun (Graubünden). It is part of the New Railway Link through the Alps (NRLA) project, which also includes the Ceneri Base Tunnel further south (scheduled to open late 2020) and the Lötschberg Base Tunnel on the other main north-south axis. It is referred to as a "base tunnel" since it bypasses most of the existing Gotthard railway line, a winding mountain route opened in 1882 across the Saint-Gotthard Massif, which was operating at its capacity before the opening of the GBT. The new base tunnel establishes a direct route usable by high-speed rail and heavy freight trains. The main purpose of the Gotthard Base Tunnel is to increase local transport capacity through the Alpine barrier, especially for freight, notably on the Rotterdam–Basel–Genoa corridor, and more specifically to shift freight volumes from trucks to freight trains. This both significantly reduces the danger of fatal road crashes involving trucks, and reduces the environmental damage caused by heavy trucks. The tunnel provides a faster connection between the canton of Ticino and the rest of Switzerland, as well as between northern and southern Europe, cutting the Basel/Zürich–Lugano–Milan journey time for passenger trains by one hour (and from Lucerne to Bellinzona by 45 minutes). After 64 percent of Swiss voters accepted the NRLA project in a 1992 referendum, first preparatory and exploratory work began in 1996. The official start of construction began on 4 November 1999 at Amsteg. Drilling operations in the eastern tunnel were completed on 15 October 2010 in a breakthrough ceremony broadcast live on Swiss TV, and in the western tunnel on 23 March 2011. The tunnel's constructor, AlpTransit Gotthard AG, originally planned to hand over the tunnel to Swiss Federal Railways (SBB CFF FFS) in operating condition in December 2016 but, on 4 February 2014, the handover date was changed to 5 June 2016 with the start of an 850-day opening countdown calendar on the AlpTransit homepage. As of 1998, the total projected cost of the project was CHF 6.323 billion; as of December 2015, the final cost is projected as CHF 9.560 billion. Nine people died during construction.

Future Megaprojects - Tunnel | Russia and Alaska (Extreme Engineering) Documentary
 
41:56
Bering Strait Tunnel The Bering Strait Tunnel would connect Russia and Alaska creating a high-speed rail line freight route and a crucial oil pipeline. Twice as long as the channel tunnel it would be the most ambitious and expensive tunneling project ever attempted. To build it massive Tunnel Boring Machines would start on both sides of the strait - 64 miles apart - and meet in the middle. All this would have to be built in some of the most difficult conditions anywhere on the planet: permafrost regions mountains and summer swamps and an entire region known for frequent large magnitude earthquakes that put everything and everyone at constant risk. With the world getting better and better every second the quest for perfection is at its limit and beyond. The quest of perfection is getting insatiable and there are some insanely big and ambitious projects underway. Here are the mega projects which promise to further enhance the world we currently live in. With the growth and expansion of the world’s economies there are plenty of large-scale investment projects that are under development currently. Most of these megaprojects of the future consisting of roads bridges skyscrapers airports and tunnels involve massive investment and use of superior technology. The cost of these large projects can run into billions of dollars and the greatest challenge for developing some of these spectacular projects can be to acquire adequate funding. These new methods of transport and infrastructure around different cities have opened up new possibilities for trade and commerce and paved the way for globalization. Let’s take a look at some of the megaprojects of the future here.

Meet Crossrail's giant tunnelling machines
 
06:34
Crossrail will use eight tunnel boring machines (TBMs) to construct the new tunnels under London. These huge machines will work 24 hours a day beneath the streets of London, excavating large volumes of ground and erecting the concrete tunnel lining. Each machine has a rotating cutter head at the front, and a series of trailers behind, housing all the mechanical and electrical equipment required for the excavation of material. To construct the 42km of tunnel required for Crossrail the tunnel boring machines will undertake ten individual tunnel drives to construct the 6.2m diameter rail tunnels. Each TBM weighs approximately 1000 tonnes and will be up to 140m in length with an external diameter of 7.1m. This allows for an inside tunnel diameter of 6.2m once the concrete tunnel segments are in place. Each TBM will be operated by a 'tunnel gang' comprising of around twenty people - twelve people on the TBM itself and eight people working from the rear of the machine to above ground.

After nearly impaling my self of the spikey fence I made it into the tunnel. It's not often you explore an old railway tunnel that still has the tracks down, so although a short tunnel, there's alot more to see. Half way through there's a rather large air shaft. Some parts of the tunnel were quite difficult to film/photograph due to a lack of air, there was alot of floating fog around and the it just caused my torch to create a beam.

Pakistan Railway Rail and Tunnels in Balochistan.
 
02:41
Pakistan Railway Rail and Tunnels in Balochistan. Quetta railway station (Urdu: کوئٹہ اسٹیشن‬‎, Balochi: کوئٹہ اسٹیشن) is the main railway station of Quetta, Balochistan, Pakistan and serves as a major station on the Rohri-Chaman Railway Line and the eastern terminus of the Quetta-Taftan Railway Line.QUETTA: Railways remained one of the most ignored sectors in Balochistan where Lahore failed to look after the interests of the Province and its people.Built and named by the British government during the colonial era, the railway tunnels of Balochistan carved in the mountains of the province still stand erected in their original form. The project that began in 1879 for defence purposes continued for years because other than laying down railway tracks in areas that were hardly accessible, constructing tunnels over a hundred and fifty years ago was an almost impossible task. One of the tunnels was named ‘Shela Baagh’ after a famous dancer of the time whose dance was what entertained the British builders during the construction period. A tunnel near the Dozan Railway Station in Bolan was named ‘Windy Corner’ because of the strong winds that blew in the area, while the Mary Jean Tunnel between Kolpur and Dozan got its name after ‘Mary Jean’ - the wife of the engineer who built it. Enunciated in the architecture of the tunnels, the beauty of the structures still remains - that itself is a proof of the expertise and skillfulness that was put into the construction.

China Green lights First Underwater High Speed Railway [BREAKING NEWS]
 
03:26
China Green lights First Underwater High Speed Railway [BREAKING NEWS] Exclusive Media News: Beijing has just green lighted a project to build the country's first underwater bullet train route. The line will connect Ningbo, a port city south of Shanghai, to Zhoushan, an archipelago off the east coast. The proposed underwater tunnel will be a part of the 77-kilometer Yong-Zhou Railway plan (Yong is the nickname of Ningbo) to boost tourism and create a two-hour-commute zone within China's Zhejiang Province. First mentioned in a government transportation plan in 2005, the feasibility study of the Yong-Zhou Railway plan was approved by Beijing in November. Within the 77 km (47.8 miles) railway route, some 70.92 km of tracks will be newly built, including a 16.2 km undersea section. Line to significantly shorten journey When completed, the Yong-Zhou Railway will connect Ningbo East Station and Zhoushan (Baiquan) Station by high-speed trains that hit a maximum speed of 250 kilometers per hour. The new route, connecting to the existing vast high-speed rail network in China, will transport travelers from Hangzhou -- capital city of Zhejiang -- to Zhoushan in 80 minutes. The current journey takes about 4.5 hours by bus or a 2.5-hour drive by personal vehicle. Seven stations are planned for the entire route, including four new stations and three redeveloped ones. In addition to the undersea tunnel, a road-rail bridge will be built to link parts of the archipelago. Easy access to Boeing's new China factory With a price tag of RMB 25.2 billion (or $3.6 billion), the project is expected to begin next year and is due for completion in 2025. Zhoushan, some three hours' drive south of Shanghai, is still relatively under-the-radar among international tourists. But in terms of business, it's one of the most noteworthy new state-level areas (or special economic-development zones designated by the Beijing government) in China. Ningbo-Zhoushan Port is the busiest in the world in terms of cargo throughput. Zhoushan is also home to American aircraft maker Boeing's first overseas factory, which is due to begin operations in December 2018. But what's there for regular tourists? The Zhoushan Archipelago's Shengsi Islands, officially declared a National Scenic Area in China, have recently been making the rounds on the internet thanks to a series of wild photos of the eerie but stunning abandoned fisherman village of Houtouwan.

It is the realisation of a project dreamt up by Ottoman sultans more than a century ago. The tunnel is the world's first connecting two continents and was inaugurated on the 90th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey. The engineering feat spans 13 kilometres and will carry subway commuters in Istanbul, which is Europe's biggest city with a population of 15 million people. An estimated two million cross the Bosphorus Strait daily. Work began in 2004 on what is one of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan pet projects designed to change the face of Turkey.Archaeological excavations delayed completion. Eventually the tunnel will serve high-speed and freight trains. The idea for a rail tunnel below the Bosphorus dates back to 1860 while it is believed at one time one Sultan had French engineers draw up plans for a submerged tunnel which was never built and the peninsula remained intact. Now the Marmaray tunnel, an immersed tube set in the seabed has joined the two continents. One point four kilometres of its full length is fully immersed some 60 metres below the surface. It can carry around 1.5 million passengers per day. The total cost topped three point three billion euros and the government hopes it will develop into an important trading route. Marmaray is set on a silty seabed and is 20 kilometres from the active North Anatolian Fault raising fears it could be at risk from a large earthquake. But its free floating structure has been designed to withstand a quake with a magnitude of 9. Its interlocking construction means each section can be sealed off. The Yenikapi station on the European side of Istanbul will showcase relics which were uncovered during the tunnel's construction. Many date back as far a 8,500 years. The excavation site included a Byzantine port and 13 shipwrecks. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

Ramsgate Scenic Railway Tunnel
 
08:59
Another clip from our trip into Ramsgate tunnels in 2010. This video we walk down the Scenic Railway Tunnel into the main wind tunnel. © 1998-2008 Subterranea Britannica: The London Chatham & Dover Railway Company opened their extension from Margate to a terminus at Ramsgate Harbour in 1863. The last section of the line ran in a 1124 yard tunnel from Dumpton Park to the terminus on the seafront, close to the harbour. In 1926, Southern Railway built a link from their line at Dumpton Park to the former South Eastern Railway station at Ramsgate Town, a mile inland. The link was built because of cramped conditions at the terminus and the steep gradient which caused some difficulty for steam locomotives. The Harbour Station and the tunnel were closed from 2nd July that year. While the track was soon lifted, the station building, purchased by the Town Corporation, was leased to Thanet Amusements Ltd. who built their Pleasureland Amusement Park. Having opened a fun fair and zoo, the company was keen to utilise the former railway tunnel and after considering a number of possible proposals decided on a narrow gauge 'scenic' railway running from the southern tunnel portal where they built 'Beach Station', to a new terminus at 'Hereson Road' a few minutes walk from the Southern Railway's Dumpton Park Station. The scenic railway utilised the first 800 yards of the railway tunnel from where a new 300 yard narrow gauge (8' X 6') spur tunnel was constructed. The spur curved to the northwest at a gradient of 1 in 15, emerging into the new station at Hereson Road. The contract for the work was awarded to Holborn Construction who in 1936 built a single track line with a passing loop just short of the spur junction, and three tracks serving two wooden platforms at each station The 'World Scenic Railway' as it was called, opened for business on August Bank Holiday 1936. Each carriage was fitted spotlights to illuminate tableaux on the tunnel walls. At the outbreak of war in September 1939 the railway ceased operations. Deep level shelters were not practicable in many areas but as Ramsgate was built on beds of upper chalk, tunneling would prove an easy and cheap task requiring no propping. The town's borough engineer and surveyor R.D. Brimmell conceived and planned a scheme for tunneling galleries out of the chalk. This was similar to the only other known network of deep shelters in Barcelona that Spain built during the Spanish civil war. Following Hitler's seizure of Austria in 1938 Brimmell put his proposals before the town council for submission to the Home Office for approval. The plan was rejected on the grounds that it was "premature". Following Munich, the council approached the Home Office a second time but were again turned down. In the spring of 1939 when Hitler walked into Czechoslovakia, the council made a third appeal to the Home Office who relented and excavations began. By the outbreak of war, work was nearing completion on what was to become one of the most extensive network of deep air-raid shelters anywhere in the country. Plans were soon in hand to incorporate both the standard gauge and narrow gauge tunnels in to the shelter network. The tunnels would be linked to a further 3.25 miles of new tunnels skirting the town in a semi-circular route. The contract for this immense undertaking was awarded to Francois Cementation Co. Ltd., at a cost of £40,383 with an additional £13,481 for seating, lighting, chemical toilets and the costs of converting the existing tunnels. Work proceeded night and day and the first section of the network between West Harbour and Queen Street was opened by the Duke of Kent on 1st June 1939 with the contract due to be completed by the end of that year. As each new section of tunnel was opened it received it's allocation of local people with strict regulations enforced; smoking was forbidden and pets and prams were not allowed underground. The first section opened had batteries and a generator but the rest of the tunnels had to rely on the town supply, which was at times erratic. Eventually the council provided 200 hurricane lamps. There was also a system of loudspeakers to relay wireless programmes and announcements. The tunnels ran at a depth of 50 to 90 feet, following the line of existing roads wherever possible. For most of its length they were unsupported and un-lined but the entrance tunnels close to the surface and a few short sections through unstable ground were lined with reinforced concrete. For most of their length the new tunnels were 6' wide by 7' high with toilet recesses fitted with curtains at 75 foot intervals and a first aid post every 1000 feet. visit subbrit for more info: http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/sites/r/ramsgate_air_raid_shelter_and_scenic_railway/index.shtml #dovertunnels #doverww2 #doverhistory #iks #pillbox
