Rail link workable

Friday, November 24, 2017 - 11:46

From Sam Turner, Sandown:

Upon reading the proposals of Carl Feeney’s Able ConnectionsLtd, for a transport hub among other things, to include the IW Steam Railway(IWSR), I feel he may be hinting at something else entirely.

The Island simply does not have the infrastructure or communications(roads) to cope with and sustain high roll-on road traffic from the mainland,and never will, but a rail tunnel link might just be workable — certainly if itconnects with the IWSR.

Concluding therefore, if there were ever to be a fixed linkfrom the mainland, then the only consideration should be a rail tunnel link.

I do not want any form of fixed link but I would like tothank Mr Feeney for putting rail into the equation.
