Bridge to Link Ireland and Scotland
The BMC today announced plans to build a state-of-the-art automobile and train connection between Scotland and Northern Ireland. Engineers are currently evaluating whether a bridge or tunnel will provide the best link between the two islands. Above is one of six proposed plans to cross the 37km (23 mile) span.
The Irish government applauds the plan, noting that the bridge will connect both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to the rest of Europe. Meanwhile, officials in County Clare Ireland have also announced their own plans to launch a feasibility study to evaluate a possible Ireland-North American bridge.
