The Submerged floating Tunnel is a tube-like structure of Steel or Concrete made to through buoyancy and supported on columns or held in place by tethers attached to the sea floor or by pontoons floating on the surface.
The Submerged floating tunnel utilizes lakes and waterways to carry traffic underwater and on to the other side, where it can be conveniently linked to the rural network or to the underground infrastructure of modern cities.
In recent times, the needs of society for regional growth and the protection of the environment have assumed increased importance. In this wider context the submerged floating tunnel offers new opportunities.
The submerged floating tunnel is an innovative concept for crossing waterways, utilizing the law of buoyancy to support the structure at a moderate and convenient depth.
The beauty of the bridge is that it takes over to the other side. The beauty of the bridge is also the aesthetic impression.
Sometimes it might be best if the bridge was not there, because of the environmental impact a bridge may have, such as noise, pollution and disruption to the scenery. But then you cannot get across – to the other side.
