'We need an underwater train to Ireland,' says think tank [BBC News]

Date: 11/11/2014

An underwater tunnel linking Wales to Ireland should be seriously considered, a transport think tank has said. Similar to the Channel Tunnel, it has called for a new route to run between Holyhead and Dublin. With an expected cost of around £15bn, the investment would be similar to that of the HS2 from London to Birmingham. The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) Cymru Wales thinks the tunnel could be ready by the end of the century.
