CONNECTING NORTHERN IRELAND AND SCOTLAND BY RAIL TUNNEL

Notes updated Aug 2020
The future of large-scale infrastructural projects is uncertain, as projects are irrationally chosen by politicians largely motivated by a need to demonstrate power and control over others & for electoral purposes.
The current social dysfunction created by the rise of English Nationalism (Brexit) combined with the effects of pandemic, make the construction of a Tunnel linking Ireland and Scotland, even more problematic!
Notwithstanding the above, this Concept graphically illustrates the proposed route for a tunnel and illustrates how the tunnel links with existing land-based infrastructure. 
Alternative routes for a tunnel have been considered and dismissed for a variety of reasons.
Designs for bridges have also been considered including a sky bridge concept.
Lack of supporting land-based infrastructure adds substantial additional cost to any Proposal.
