full story Scotland-Northern Ireland bridge idea investigated

Work 'under way' into Scotland-Northern Ireland bridge feasibility

Work is under way "by a range of government officials" to look at the idea of building a Scotland-Northern Ireland bridge, Number 10 has said.

Boris Johnson has described the bridge as a "very interesting idea", while Ireland's premier Leo Varadkar has said it was "worth examining".

But Labour's Luke Pollard said the project was "a distraction".

Two routes have previously been floated - from Portpatrick to Larne or near Campbeltown to the Antrim coast.

The Portpatrick route would be more than 20 miles across the Irish Sea.

It would be a lot better going over Sodor, the Isle of Man and then to Ireland. 馃槑
There is an excellent Railway system there although it can be a bit troublesome.
