BoJo plans to build a road to unite Scotland and Northern Ireland

The Government's plan to link both regions will "unify" transport in the UK.

As part of the Prime Minister's plan to "improve pan-UK transport links" and "address the problem of union connectivity", the UK government will launch a study into the possibility of linking Northern Ireland and Scotland with a road.

So far, there has been no confirmation on what this link is going to be, but it is known that whatever it is that the UK Government is planning, it's going to cost from £15-20 billion, which means that it's going to be quite big.

The link over the Irish Sea is also expected to cultivate a new national strategy that will replace the current disparate road network across UK. Boris Johnson stated that this was the main motivation behind the project: "We have failed to produce a UK-wide transport strategy. We left it, bizarrely, to the EU."

"The result is that the sinews of pan-UK transport have atrophied, with inadequate connections, needless bottlenecks and endless delays on the vital links between one part of the UK and another."

Alongside this new project, the government has allocated £20 million to other roadwork projects designed to improve conditions of UK's transport corridors, including, including widening the A1 and the A75 is south-west Scotland.

My only advice to you BoJo: build the road before Scotland can declare independence, otherwise the SNP will call the project and act of invasion and then demolish it.

  • As I understand it, the original idea of a bridge was canned, because the weather in the Irish Sea would mean it would be likely closed for about 100 days per year. So the idea of a 25 mile tunnel for rail and road (about the same length as the channel tunnel) is being sent for a feasibility study. It will be horrendously expensive, but Johnson is keen on the idea so I expect he’ll be keen to push any plan considered feasible. I imagine it would benefit Scotland some and certainly Northern Ireland. Definitely a halo project though.

  • Our "Great Leader" wants to be remembered for something significant when he's gone. Might I suggest 120,000 Covid deaths due to his incompetence would suffice.

  • He says what he is doing but never gets the plans drawn up. He was meant to have done a plan for Covid when China started having cases but that plan wasn't in place until the middle of the first lockdown, plus there is the oven ready deal with the EU regarding Brexit that was that oven ready it was raw.
