In the Suburban to SuperRural exhibition there is a piece by heneghan peng architects which proposes a bridge from rosslare to fishguard, a distance of 80km, thats more than twice the Hangzhou Bay Bridge (37km) which will be the worlds largest ocean crossing bridge.

All for the bargain price of 1.42. billion dollars! I wonder what that would cost in Ireland. Perhaps we should contract the Chinese to build one for us. At that rate we would get a bridge to fishguard for less than the M3!

Anyway here is what Henneghan Peng propose. If it was feasible i reckon it would be great!

here is a link to the pdf from where i got these images
