Slovakia and Ukraine are going to establish new outer Schengen border crossing between towns Čierna nad Tisou and Chop. It's next to the major railway border crossing and close to border crossing between Hungary and Ukraine Záhony - Chop (route E 573).

Amazing it took almost 60 years to rebuild that bridge... destroyed in 1944, rebuilt in 2001.

Imo if our countries weren't communist back in these days they would rebuilt it in a shorter time.

It wasn't just this bridge, there were probably about 50 bridges on Ipeľ/Ipoly river which were destroyed during the WW2 and never built again.Some of them were rebuilt in a last few years and many are going to be build in a next few years.

Btw, if I am sure 2 bridges are under construction. Article about Ipoly bridges on wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipoly_(Ipe%C4%BE)_Bridges

It was rather a political issue.

Two borders one trip. First is border between Füssen, Germany and Reutte, Austria:


Second, the border between Austria and Italy at Brennerpass (combination of Italians going home for voting, Germans going to Gardasee and various other nationalities - French, Spaniards, Poles, even Latvians and Belarusians):


Very bad pictures made with my cellphone.

What other underground road borders like this are there in the world?

That is the only road border crossing in a tunnel in North America, but I know of two railroad tunnels - one near the Detroit-Windsor road tunnel and the other in the Port Huron, MI/Sarnia, ON area.

There are also several border-crossing railroad tunnels in Europe, including the famous Simplon (CH/I) and English Channel (GB/F) tunnels.

Are any of those the tunnel on the France-Italy border where the French A-8 meets the Italian A-10 right on the Riviera?

Yes, I crossed the Danube several times by ferry between Esztergom and Stúrovo. The border and custom station was in the (Czecho-)Slovakian side.

If you want to see how Brennerpass was in early '80s you can take a look at this clip from Italian comedy movie "Bianco rosso e Verdone". The clip is in Italian, but I think it can be enjoyed also by non-speakers because 1-the main character doesn't speak at all, 2- the wife at the beginning speaks only German. It's the story of an Italian immigrant in Munich that goes back to Italy to vote. Any resemblance to real events and/or to real persons, living or dead, is purely NOT coincidental



However, if you don't want to have a good laugh and just want to see the road, Brennerpass starts at 5:20

The Oresund connection between Sweden and Denmark may be counted. The connection consists of a bridge, an artificial island, and a tunnel. The tunnel section resides in Denmark.

So maybe it may not be counted, because the actual border is not in the tunnel.

However, two other tunnel borders in Europe are the Loibltunnel between Austria and Slovenia and the Buco di Viso between Italy and France, built in 1480 !!
