A Bridge To Fuerteventura
A study into the viability of creating a bridge between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura has been released. The outcome is that a 13 KM bridge is viable and would cost around €740 Million.

Another study has looked into the viability of a tunnel, which would cost around €1.2 Billion.
