Northern Ireland-to-Scotland bridge included in DUP manifesto


Some stretches of highway in Norway are a revelation - even twenty years ago the ferry link on the E5 across Sognefjord was shortened by tunneling through to a cliff face on the north side, with the traffic marshalling area, including a flyover, inside the mountain and little more than the linkspan pontoon in the open. Even then there was talk of building neutral buoyancy submerged tube floating tunnels to replace ferries across deep sea stretches on the E39 coastal route, but just how this works with varying densities of traffic is beyond me. And then there's always the odd Russian submarine nosing about, to think of.
