The world's longest railway tunnel is inaugurated in Switzerland as the first two trains carrying 1,000 citizens enter the Gotthard Base Tunnel from the north and south.
"The Gotthard Base Tunnel is a once-in-a-century achievement," Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann said in an address before giving the signal for the trains to start.
The 57-kilometre tube will not only bring European peoples and industries closer together but it also showed that "epic achievements are still possible in Switzerland and in Europe," he said.
