Can Anyone advice why SIC don’t go for tunnels? When Eu and Norwegian company both would fund most of it Yell one could drive and same Unst day or night don’t depend on whether to mainland Shetland, it be great I don’t believe people in North isle would object such service if built. I see in media Sic have been at Scottish office for ferries payments to Give more Funds , But do remember not long ago Scottish Government offered to take run ferries Directly. why Sic did not except this with conditions to run service? this would have cleared their liability’s financial, and monies could go in developing communities Sic do wonderful Job operating service but time let others run service, Dont Hold on to it. They could put service out to tender possible save few Millions per year usually people look at different options but not with ferries some reason they must hold it Any operator be Glad tender and operate such ferries operation on 5-year contract I welcome any comments on this as its strange situation this saga why tunnel option is of the talks and people Northern isles depend on weather and cant get there business in lerwick done as depend ferrie times return home as tunnel 24 hours aday
