Letters / Tunnels would save ‘enormous’ amounts of carbon emissions

Over the past two decades, I have been sourcing transport details and costings from SIC reports and minutes of meetings. 

From those figures it was concluded that running a tunnel between Whalsay and the Shetland mainland, instead of running ferries; would reduce the carbon cost of this lifeline link by roughly 30 per cent. 

We now find out that the SIC carbon costs are five times higher than previously reported!

Those new figures must show the carbon savings to the SIC of running tunnels instead of ferries would now be enormous.
