The news item is illustrated by a color image of a man and machinery at work, inside a huge tunnel, under construction. The text in full:
“The main topic of discussion at this year’s Infrastructure Development of Russia’s Far East Conference in Yakutsk (a sister city of Fairbanks, Ala.) was the Eurasian-American transcontinental railway project. The massive project is still in a conceptual phase. If constructed, it would travel across the Bering Strait and link Eurasia with North America. Tunnel construction under the Bering Strait is considered to be one of the most ambitious proposed 21st-century inter-continental projects. In order to lay a railroad track from both sides, it would be necessary to build nearly 3,000 miles of railway tracks on Russian territory and 1,000 in Alaska and Canada. Meanwhile, a large portion of the route would pass through the polar region.”
