Why subsea tunnels?

Connection by tunnel will provide unrestricted travel to Yell and Unst, providing greater accessibility, irrespective of weather conditions, eliminating geographical barriers, and opening up endless possibilities for economic expansion and social integration.

We want to secure and develop existing industry, such as aquaculture and fisheries, and encourage and nurture new industries such as space and renewables.

Currently all traffic to and from Unst and Yell is significantly hindered by restrictions due to ferry timetabling and suspension. This is a significant burden for businesses in terms of cost and time.

In addition, it limits mobility of labour, as well as impeding access to services, including emergency medical care, and social opportunities located off the islands.
