If the interest really was there a ferry service like the ones between Holland and England, and the ones in Denmark, Sweden and Norway, would actually be just as well as a tunnel or bridge. The key is big ferries financed not by tickets but by Euro-trade taxes. But EU does NOT want a better connection! Fear of immigrants is enormous. :/

@ALBER PAJARES You're right, the african plate is slowly coming Forward.

Lots of comments from Europeans wanting to keep Africans out, meanwhile forgetting that increased economic growth that such a tunnel would generate would also mean more incentives for Africans to remain in Africa. As mentioned, there are already ferries that offer the exact same service, and a railway line would have the exact same strict security measures. There is a reason why it's called "Fortress Europe", because it isn't at all easy to get into.

A much, much bigger problem is does any country in Europe actually want a bridge from their country to Africa? Sort of, but really? Greece and parts of Italy already have all sorts of problems from boats arriving, and protecting their borders. In a better world, it would happen.

You should have used a map that shows depths of the ocean floor. 1:06 you don't have to go that far around, I think there are bridges at Istanbul. Regarding connecting Sicily to Italy: why build a suspension bridge? Use a floating bridge with a raised section for ships to pass under. That's what we have across our local lake. Or use a design like The Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island. Regarding connecting Africa: why build a bridge at all if it is only 3% of the world economy?

The only rational way to install a tunnel at Gibraltar would be with a floating tube anchored by flexible moorings to ride out any seismic shifts, and incorporating a gentle s-curve to adjust to the movement without risk of kinking.
