[quote][quote]Anyhow, how much will these tunnels cost[/quote]
I have already told you how much the estimate is for Bressay on the first page:
Hmm, 4 years old, what would be todays cost, for one tunnel?http://archive.scott...8/tr08-0802.htm

That is much the same as asking if wind turbines are nice to look at. Some will think bridges are beautiful, others won't. But tunnels don't have much visual impact in comparison and are also cheaper to build.
Turbines will serve far more than Â£30/40/50 million pounds spent on a bridge would.
[quote]How long would you pay the toll for. Keep in mind 2/3rds of the cost goes on the actual build, the rest on corporate stuff.
Folk will still pay similar charges to use them I would think.[/quote]
Yes, there would need to be tolls for using the tunnels, but if we had bridges there would be room for a few more trolls...[/quote]
You are good, give yoursel a shiny.
So, going on the costs of the ferry, would it be right in saying that you will be paying for at least 30 years?
You will still need a ferry though, there are prohibited items that cannot use tunnels. Also, a bus service. The need for a ferry will still remain, in case of tunnel closure.
I wonder who will manage that? The council I would suppose.
