Sorainen has been appointed as legal advisor to tunnel project FinEst Bay Area Development.

The tunnel will enable a safe, high-speed connection between Helsinki Vantaa Airport and Tallinn Airport. The aim is to complete the project in 2024, after which a 20-minute train ride between Helsinki and Tallinn will be available. The link will consist of two tunnels, each 17 metres in diameter, bored by continuous drilling with 12 tunnel-drilling machines.

The project vision of the future encompasses the twin Helsinki-Tallinn city of 3 million inhabitants in a society of intensive cross-border cooperation, education and business life.

The advisory team is led by Sorainen partner Paul Künnap.
