Con­nec­tiong the Pa­cific and At­lantic Oceans

Bulletin - - Contents -

The Cen­tral Bi-oceanic Rail Cor­ri­dor RAIL TECH­NOL­OGY (CFBC) is the “Panama Canal of the 21st cen­tury.” Mea­sur­ing just un­der 4,000 kilo­me­ters in length, the rail line will stretch from the Pa­cific to the At­lantic and is meant to con­nect land-locked Bo­livia with the ocean and bring Brazil closer to the Pa­cific (as well as China and In­dia) and Peru closer to the At­lantic (and Europe). The pro­ject of the mil­len­nium is slated to launch next year and will in­clude plenty of Swiss rail ex­per­tise: More than 30 Swiss com­pa­nies will be in­volved in build­ing the line.
