The idea of the Brenner Base Tunnel (BBT) is to reduce the amount of heavy-load traffic on roads by shifting some to rail. To be constructed between Innsbruck Hauptbahnh, Austria and Franzensfeste (Fortezza), Italy, BBT will become the second-longest tunnel in the world with a planned length of 56km (35 miles). The Brenner Pass has served as a vital alpine link between Austria and Italy since early Roman times by supporting trade and transportation from northern to southern Europe. In 1991, the prehistoric Iceman, called Oetzi, was discovered in this area, suggesting that the pass provided egress through the Alps as long as 5,000 years ago. Khyber pass is a route/path which connects Afghanistan to Pakistan. It is mainly used as a trade route and is one of the oldest known paths in history. The Brenner Pass is the story of an American engineer who single handed cut off the escape of part of the German army in Italy from onrushing American troops and was suggested by actual incidents recorded in the Washington files of the Office of Strategic Services.
