Answer
This is a repeat or duplicate question.

Although I have an additional comment to make.  The engineering of underwater tunnel design is an overwhelming task.  Much measurement and exploration of the underwater currents, temperature gradients, corrosion effects, security at both ends, additional efforts for connecting services and such would make a underwater tunnel or tube astronomical in cost and manpower requirements.

An engineering firm would like to take on a project like this because it would assure the firm of having work projects for a very long time!

Cheers.
