A tunnel is also an option, but requires a longer route via an area that is less deep. Currently, the proposal is to construct a rail tunnel, but I don't think that's a viable idea, considering the Eurotunnel troubles, plus most Moroccans living in Europe travel by car, not by train. If you don't build a rail tunnel, it saves considerably in operational cost (less subsidies, you can toll cars € 100, but it is not accepted to have a 20 km train fare that is € 100).

Another downside of a train tunnel would mean it's length, because trains cannot take grades generally over 2 - 3%, the approaches would have to be much longer than the actual section under water. That would add an additional 20 - 25 kilometers of tunnel besides the section that is actually under water.

A road tunnel that descends and ascends 300 meters is not easy, but it has been done before, several Norwegian sub-sea tunnels reach lower than -200 meters.
According to official report, a bridge is quite impossible, because of the sea deep and the wind.

The tunnel is the only fixed solution. They want to make a tunnel like betwenne GB-France. With only one tunnel in a first time, and a second tunnel after the increase traffic. But for car passengers it's not a better solution. Because the time loosing for taking a train, it's the same for taking a ferry or a fast ferry.

It will be good for freight or passengers. With moroccan TGV, Rabat-Sevilla will be at 2h30 min and Madrid-Rabat less than 5 hours. It's not enought. We will see in 2015 with our 1st HSL Tanger-Kenitra if it could be a good thing.

Now for crossing Gibraltar straigt, we have a new harbour Tanger-med. But the straight crossing by car, it's the most expensive ferry line in world 120 euros for a car + 27 by passengers ! So the price is not the biggest problem.

Daily traffic

Quote:
Evolution des recettes de péage et du trafic


TRAFIC


En 2009, les trafics et les recettes de péage (ces dernières exprimées en TTC) ont évolué respectivement de 10,9 % et de 15,4% par rapport à l’année 2008. L’écart entre les évolutions du trafic et de la recette est dû à la révision à la hausse du taux de la TVA (de 7% à 10%) appliquée au péage. Sur réseau stable, sans tenir compte de l’effet des sections nouvellement mises en service, les évolutions de la circulation et des recettes de péage entre 2009 et 2008 sont respectivement de 9,7% et de 12,5%.

Security figures

Evolution des indicateurs de sécurité

Durant l’année 2009, le réseau autoroutier a enregistré :

1 107 accidents corporels dont 104 mortels ;
614 blessés graves ;
125 tués.
La sécurité de la circulation sur le réseau autoroutier en exploitation a connu une nette amélioration durant l’année 2009 par rapport à l’année précédente.

En effet, le tableau ci-après donne l’évolution des principaux indicateurs de la sécurité :




Le graphe ci-après trace l’évolution globale des taux de sécurité sur le réseau en exploitation au premier semestre durant les trois dernières années :
