Underwater tunnel linking Wales and Ireland: vision of the future?

Plans for an underwater tunnel between Wales and Ireland have been proposed by a leading transport institution.

A new report published by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Cymru Wales suggests the tunnel could be completed by the end of the century, with the new route running between Holyhead and Dublin. It is thought the tunnel could provide a major European transport corridor.

The report, Vision 2035: Cymru Wales, estimates the transport link would cost around £15bn and would resemble the Channel Tunnel.
