The Port of Valencia is to build an undersea tunnel costing €400m, with half of the funding coming from an economic development ministry and Valencia port authority Autoridad Portuaria de Valencia (APV).

The tunnel, which will require the signing of a protocol with the Valencia autonomous government, will provide access from the proposed northward expansion of the port in the city of Valencia to the harbour at Sagunto, which is also part of the APV.

President of the local government Ximo Puig announced the project, explaining that its construction would avoid an unnecessary build-up of freight traffic on roads in the immediate area.

However, the municipal government of the city of Valencia stressed that it had no knowledge whatsoever of the undersea tunnel.
