The government is to launch a feasibility study regarding a bride or tunnel between Northern Ireland and Scotland. This is part of the Prime ministers plan to "address the problem of union connectivity" and accelerating economic growth in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The proposed link between Scotland and Ireland is part of a nationwide initiative to improve the devolved system currently in place.
The prime cited his motivations behind the plans "For far too long, we have tended to carve up the country through a devolve-and-forget approach. We have devised transport strategies for Scotland, for Wales, for Northern Ireland and [for] Northern England – and yet, incredible as it may seem, we have failed to produce a UK-wide transport strategy."
