I come from a fairly remote island where we need a 150 min ferry ride to reach the mainland.
While the island has few resources that would encourage a government to investigate the possibility of a large bridge such as the Denmark-Sweden one, there is one resource that we have in abundance - wind.
Would it be possible to combine a mega-bridge with an offshore wind-farm? With turbines in the bridge towers. Possibly also wave-generators underneath? Or is this just fantasy?
If this is a realistic possibility, then maybe, just maybe, we could at least get someone to consider this rather than laugh-out any suggestion of connecting us to the mainland.
The shortest distance is 23-24 km. An alternative would be a total distance of 29Km, but hitting a small island after about 20Km.
I suspect it's just fantasy, but it'd be good to know.
