60 Years Later, World's Longest Tunnel is Complete
 
At that moment, a 35.4-mile (57-kilometer) tunnel was born, and the Alpine nation reclaimed the record from Japan's Seikan Tunnel. Television stations across Europe showed the event live.

Crazy. Too bad they didn't have better pictures without the drilling machine blocking the view.

I expect a Modern Marvels episode coming up.

These tunnel projects are fascinating, bridges too. I watched the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (drove through it too) and the English "Chunnel".
