Sorainen has been appointed as legal advisor to the FinEst Bay Area Development tunnel project, designed to enable a safe, high-speed connection between Helsinki Vantaa Airport and Tallinn Airport.
According to Sorainen, "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 meters in diameter, bored by continuous drilling with 12 tunnel-drilling machines." The firm reports that "the project vision of the future encompasses the twin Helsinki-Tallinn city of three million inhabitants in a society of intensive cross-border cooperation, education, and business life.”
The Sorainen advisory team is being led by Partner Paul Kunnap.
