    A Beijing-London line would be incredible and would be a step forward in helping to marginalize the use of air travel.

    There are several other megaprojects that really demand the world’s attention.

    1. Bering Strait crossing. This one directly benefits us. Interstate highways running through B.C. and rail links to Russia. All paid for by the U.S. and Russia! Our country just happens to be in the way!

    2. Gibraltar Bridge – By connecting Africa to Europe, the poorer Africa will stand to benefit greatly

    3. Darien Gap – Requires co-operation between Colombia, Panama, Venezula, U.S.A.

    Well, Cliff, get on it! I’d like to see a progress report by the end of this quarter :)

    Both the USA and Russia are developing their road and rail links to the Bering Coast as we speak.

    These plans do include a tunnel from Russia to Alaska. The only thing is the funding. So, yes, the wheels are in motion and it’s only a matter of time before the price of oil becomes expensive enough to make such a project cost effective.

    It’s just a matter of time!
