Re: The Port of Sunderland
In theory it'd be possible, the new radial route would be the answer to some of the infrastructure. Plus the masses of disused railway line to and from the docks is just wasted at the minute, but all depended on the demand which i suspect would be not sustainable...
The state of the docks is a crying shame, so much potential for development, masses of empty land. The Bartram's site is still just rubble, and the oil storage depot was vacated the last i heard. There were some interesting council plans a few years back outlining redevelopment of the docks with renewable energy stuff but i think they are more preoccupied with chasing fishermen off the piers.
