Northern Ireland-to-Scotland bridge included in DUP manifesto


A bridge from Bangor to Portpatrick might cost more, but it would land at each side in relatively populated areas where the road (and maybe rail) links would surely be cheaper to establish, whereas a bridge from Torr Head to the Mull of Kintyre would involve far more expensive infrastructure. On the Scottish side this would require negotiating some of the most challenging terrain in Britain - not only at the Mull itself, but in the form of crossing sea lochs and the Firth of Clyde on the way to Glasgow - but on the other hand would revolutionise transport links between south Argyll and the rest of the country.
