China is planning the world’s longest undersea tunnel (76 miles long) that will run between the cities of Dalian and Yantai.  Engineers will attempt to bore three tunnels 100 feet below the sea bed; one for cars, one for trains and one for maintenance purposes .  Design and construction of the tunnel will be a challenge since its proposed location is in area prone to earthquakes, as it passes through two major fault lines.
